The Best of British Craft Beer
Best Lager – Kendo Rice Lager
We love a lager, and the Kendo Rice Lager from Crooked Brewing is the absolute definition of refreshing! That’s why it was a natural choice for the best British lager.
This super crisp rice lager is brewed with Japanese Sorachi Ace hops. Its light flavour profile balances sweetness as well as a subtle lemon-like bite from the hops. You’ve never tried a lager quite like this one.
Best Pale Ale – North Point Pale Ale
The flagship beer from Lost at Sea Brewing Co is the crisp and light North Point Pale Ale. There’s a reason why we chose this as our best Pale Ale! This British brewery has layered floral and fruit aromas over soft Yorkshire water and Golden Promise pale malt.
Initially soft on the palate, North Point’s waves of flavour lead effortlessly to a deliciously bitter finish. This is a pale ale unlike any other!
Best IPA – Fake Ale of San Francisco
This was the most difficult category to choose from, simply because there are so many incredible British IPAs nowadays. But we had to choose, and we went with Fake Ale of San Francisco from Brighton Bier!
They decided to break from the West Coast or New England style of IPA, and that’s what ultimately set them apart from the rest. This is a super flavoursome citrus IPA that is dry hopped with Citra, Mosaic, Galaxy & Ekuanot. You’ve got to try it!
Best Stout – Dark Magus Milk Stout
Is there anything more delicious than a great stout! Three Sods Brewery makes a fabulous milk stout that is truly the best of British beer. An ode to smoothness and style, this stout is a blend of chocolate, roasted barley and crystal malts.
The lactose brings a sweetness and a smooth mouthfeel that really make this milk stout stand head and shoulders above the rest.
Best Low Alcohol Beer – YABBA Beer
Finally, there’s been a huge surge of low alcohol beers recently, so they also deserve a spot on this list! Once again, there are many wonderful low ABV beers to choose from, but ultimately we had to go with YABBA.
This low alcohol lager has pale malt aromas with a zip of lemon. Light maltiness and a refreshing finish make this a wonderfully bold lager that is truly the best of British beer.
