The 3rd instalment of BeerClub_UK’s special on Batemans Brewery leads us onto Triple XB, their Classic Premium Pale Ale.
A classic English copper-red bitter, brewed with pale, crystal and wheat malts, and hopped with English Goldings and Styrian Goldings varieties. XXXB has a rich aroma of biscuity malt, hop resins and vine fruits. Peppery hops, ripe fruit and juicy malt fill the mouth, followed by a long, luscious finish packed with earthy hops and a dry, cracker-like maltiness.
A multi award-winning beer this one, so we were all thoroughly looking forward to trying it.
Classic Greene King IPA in the colour. Decent head, this looks a good solid beer at first glance. Good fruity smell to it, slight pepper to the taste, easily taking big gulps of this – before I know it, it is all gone – damn!
We all agreed this that Triple XB is a cracking pint.
This is a smooth a drink as you’ll find. A Rolls Royce of a ale, massively brewed for a good session, you could drink this all night which says all you need to know.
