Orkney Best beer from Swannay Brewery

Orkney Best

Regular price £2.95 Sale price £2.36


A classic bitter ale that, as Rob once said, is suitable for drinking at any time of the day. Not that we at all endorse a lunchtime beer, save it for special occasions, but you know what we mean - this beer is light and refreshing. At only 3.6% it's one of our lowest ABV beers in a bottle. 

Starting with a simple malt bill of British grains we build on this with rather a lot of soft, delicate and low alpha hops from the UK, Poland and Germany for a layered and complex, yet still ever so refreshing, hoppy finish. 

Like most of our beers the flavours build and build the further through the bottle(s) you get.
