Yeovil Ales

Summerset 5L Mini Cask *Unfined available on request*

Cask conditioned real ale in a handy 5L mini cask which can be stored unopened for up to 2 months; once opened they are best consumed within 24-48 hours.

Care of your Mini Cask Conditioned Beer

OK - got it!

This is cask conditioned beer containing live yeast, it needs to be kept upright and cool, but not refrigerated, 12 C is ideal.

Allow the sediment to settle for at least 3-6 hours before drinking. Before venting pull out the tap and pour out some beer into a glass in order to release pressure prior to opening the top valve (opens by turning from 0 to 1). This will avoid beer squirting through the vent and being lost.

Once opened consume within 2 to 3 days as the beer will oxidise. Always close the vent on the top of the cask after use to maintain condition. A slight yeast haze may be present which is natural to the beer. If the cask is moved after opening the packed yeast sediment on the base may be disturbed, resulting in cloudy beer.

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.
