Bath Ales Gem is a quintessential British beer from a traditional British brewery. As a craft wave revolution threatens the old styles, it is nice to see a brewery producing a best bitter with an exceptional taste. Using the best of British Ingredients, Challenger and Goldings hops, Maris Otter barley and locally sourced water, this oozes quality. 4.8% makes this beer not too strong but more than enjoyable. This chestnut brown beer has a rich aroma of hops and malts and has a very well rounded balance between sweet and bitter on the palate. Brewed with skill and passion, this full textured beer pairs well with poultry, salads, pizza and strong cheese.
