Ledbury

A pale ale brewed with a mixture of US and English hops with the main English hop being Ernest. Ernest is grown on a few farms in Herefordshire, but the one we use is grown by Simon Parker at Instone Court in Bishops Frome. Ernest gives a lot of lemon aroma and flavour and is a good match for the fruit and citrus we get from the US hops we use (Cluster, First Gold and Olicana).
