TEIGNWORTHY BREWERY - JOHN LAWTON AT THE GREAT BRITISH BEER FESTIVAL, LONDON NATIONAL SILVER MEDAL WINNER - BITTER CATEGORY


On visiting Earls Court in London on Tuesday 3 August 2011 I enjoyed a few pints of our Reel Ale, along with trying several pints from other small breweries around the country.


At 3pm the Awards were announced during the trade session, I only popped out for a minute, on my return a fellow brewer patted me on the back, we had won a Silver Medal in the Bitter Class!!!!



This was of great surprise to me, along with two other South West Breweries.


The beer itself is Reel Ale, our original beer Teignworthy brewed at 4% abv.



I devised this beer as an easy drinking type of bitter for all types of people. The description in the Good Beer Guide - Reel Ale - clean, sharp-tasting bitter with lasting hoppiness, predominatly malty aroma.


Along with its Amber colour this is what I have in the humble pint of Ale.


I probably could live on Crusty White Bread, well Matured Cheddar Cheese or Silton and this type of ale for a long time.


This pint needs to have a good white head, large and small bubbles. This must lace down the side of the pint glass, sticking to the side like a piece of lace. The clarity must be good, almost a polish like a new pair of shoes. Lastly the taste and the smell must be pleasing along with a certain dryness on the back of the tongue, urging you to drink more of the ale!


This is what the ground work should be to get a good pint and get the recognition it justly deserves, CHEERS! Mines a Teignworthy!!!
