A guest post from my friend the Ulster Scot again:
There are quite a few breweries in Shropshire. Being in Ludlow for the weekend it seemed right to try the very local from The Ludlow Brewing Company.
On offer at The Church pub close to the market was Gold, one of four beers from the Brewery. The Ludlow Brewery says it keeps its ingredients simple, and this beer certainly provided a clean and hoppy ale, not at all sharp. At 4.2% ABV it is a sensible lunchtime drink that doesn’t compete with food for attention. It has a pale golden colour and a delayed and pleasant not sharply bitter aftertaste.
Made with: Maris Otter pale malt, Fuggles & Goldings hops. The other beers from the Brewery are: The Boiling Well, Ludlow Best and the most recent Black Knight. Some happy lunchtimes ahead on the occasional visits to this charming and very English town.
