Beer sellers: Westholme Store
Origin: Wallingford, Oxfordshire, England
Based on a farm in rural Oxfordshire at Brightwell-cum-Sotwell near Wallingford, Appleford was founded in 2006 by Andrew Torrance, formerly an accountant at the Morland brewery which was bought and closed by Greene King. Beers tend to be sold locally.
The bottle conditioned version of the brewery’s standard bitter Power Station, named for the nearby landmark power station at Didcot, is amber with a fine beige head and a fruity, lightly sulphurous aroma with a spicy orange whiff. The palate is full and biscuity with notes of toast, yeast, wet plastic and burnt rubber. A hoppy bitter finish has a tinge of tart apple core and gritty roast notes. Substantial and tasty, though best drunk fresh.
