Brakspear – Triple III 6.7%
This is a chestnut coloured ale with good fruit and molasses rum aromas, with a hint of vanilla. It has a rich malt, dried fruit and citrus flavours, leading to a bitter aftertaste. A good warming winter ale.
The Brakspear Brewery was a traditional brewery in Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire. In 2002 brewing ceased and the brand and equipment were sold to the Wychwood Brewery Company, now part of the Marston brewing group and the Brakspear range of ales are now brewed under the Brakspear name at the Wychwood Brewery in Witney.
Brakspear historically had many pubs around the Henley, Maidenhead area as a local brewer and now supplies bottled beers to the general market as part of the Marston range.
