"I have tried many different beers over the years and have settled on Ambar.

This beer is refreshingly continental, very easy to drink without loosing the subtle taste of the hops. It is well balanced, with just the right amount of fermentation but should be drunk chilled to make the most  of this excellent lager."

  • Crop Circle by champion brewers, Hopback Brewery. A very clean, flaxen-coloured beer with wonderful thirst-quenching properties. The subtle blend of aroma and bittering hops give a crispness on the tongue which is delicately fruity, giving way to some dryness. An amazing balance of light cereals and fruity hops is found here. Very zesty flavours give way to a drying finish making this a very satisfying golden ale. The inclusion of flaked maize in the grist subtlely hints at crisp corn flavours. Crop Circle has an ABV of 4.2% and 500 ml bottle size.   Sold in cases of 6 or 18.  Hopback Crop Circle bottled condition beer is now acredited as gluten free and a recognised prouct by Coeliac UK.

 

"Now Crop circle is a lovely beer, ideal for those who, like me have been beer drinkers for years and years and then are diagnosed, most cruelly, as a coeliac. CC  is just like a 'proper' ale, actually, more like an I.P.A., with that lovely tang which snaps at your tongue, almost a herby tinge to it. I shall need more of that, as it brings back sensations I thought I had lost."
