ABV: 4.5%, Colour: Pale Gold

Our citrussy pale ale, Blind Tiger

Tasting Notes:

A refreshing and aromatic pale ale. Bright golden, and with oranges added to the brew to give a delicious citrussy flavour, followed by a satisfying dry finish.

Background: 

A ‘Blind Tiger’ was a name for an illegal drinking den in the 1920s, which evaded prohibition laws by disguising itself as an exhibition hall for ‘natural curiosities’. They charged their patrons a fee to see a variety of exotic creatures such as a blind tiger (reportedly a pig painted with stripes), which, surely by coincidence, included free alcohol with admission.

The beer was formerly known as Maid Marian, rebranded in 2016.

Food Matching:

Blind Tiger’s fresh crisp flavour is the perfect match for light-tasting foods such as traditional fish and chips. We’d also highly recommend combining its fresh orange flavour with fruity desserts such as an indulgent cheesecake or a sorbet.
