OK - got it!

Our bottled conditioned beers are brewery conditioned, unfiltered, unfined and totally vegan friendly. The beer contains a very low live yeast count and is bottled at very cold temperature on site at the brewery in Yeovil.

Only when the beer reaches the desired condition with natural carbonation and an ultra-low yeast count do we consider if it is ready to chill below zero. We further cold condition the beer ensuring the beer is fridge friendly bottled conditioned real ale.

Yeovil Ales has developed this exhaustive method to maintain a very fine, live yeast sediment in the bottle which provides the effervescence and excellent head retention in the glass that is expected of Yeovil Ales beers. If the bottle is opened carefully and poured gently in one single pouring, the yeast remains at the bottle bottom. The result is a perfectly clear refreshing glass of beer. Some prefer to add the yeast, so gently invert the bottle to disturb the sediment.

Bottle Conditioned beer is easy to keep and serve and is the finest quality for discerning drinkers. We recommend serving at 12 °C although the beer can be served colder, straight from the fridge.

History

The original brew recipe concept for SUMMERSET goes way back to the early nineties when ROB was going through an experimental phase ;-)  The challenge was to brew a pleasant tasting, fruity blonde, with great body and not too long a finish.

SUMMERSET was Yeovil Ales first commercial brew and won "Champion Beer Of The Festival" at the CAMRA Weymouth Octoberfest, October 2006.

SUMMERSET then went on to win the Silver Award at the West Dorset CAMRA Beerex '07 held in Dorchester, February 2007.
