Teme Valley Wotever Next?

British Real Ale in a Bottle May 2010

ABV: 5%
Origin: Knightwick, Worcestershire, England


This beer featured as a British Real Ale in a Bottle on the bottled beer review page in the May 2010 issue of BEER magazine, sent free every quarter to CAMRA members, who can also view it online. The magazine is also available in selected newsagents.  For more beers featured in this article, see previous post.

Teme Valley Brewery, founded in 1997 behind the Talbot pub at Knightwick in Worcestershire, is known for its “green hop” beers produced seasonally after each hop harvest, but I prefer its curiously named strong  and hearty bottled bitter Teme Valley Wotever Next? (5 per cent).

This is a burgundy-tinged deep amber brew with a yellowish head, produced from Maris Otter pale malt, crystal, chocolate and wheat malts and Northdown and Fuggles hops. An earthy, fruity aroma with notes of blackcurrant and toffee apple introduces a mouthful with a good sappy body and nutty and fruity autumnal flavours. There’s dry roast nuts in the pippy finish, with a smack of hops and lingering roasty coloured malt notes. This is one of those rich, chewy beers in the manner of Jennings Sneck Lifter.
