A truly classic highly popular English session ale made with Best Pale Ale and medium colour Crystal malts. Bitterness is well balanced using English Fuggle and Wye Challenger hops to give a fruity and spicy palate. Like all Hydes classic ales, Original is still dry hopped to the cask at racking with Fuggles to add further aroma and depth.
Whilst this beer has a modest abv, making it highly sessionable, it is brewed in the traditional way using Best Pale Ale and Crystal malts, to give a full and satisfying pint. Mid-brown in colour owing to the use of a small amount of Caramel sugar added to the wort Copper at boiling, 1863 lets loose the flavours and aromas of Fuggles and Challenger hops used to bitter it.
Crafted from Citra and Chinook hops to produce an intensely hoppy and refreshing Golden beer. The use of amber malt gives the beer an attractive richness with oodles of strong citrus and lovely tropical tones. A real “Hop Heads” beer.
