Ember Inns Summer selection

With the constant changes going through Mitchells & Butlers at the moment its good to see that their Ember Inns division is still doing a selection of real ales. The Old Cottage in Lisvane has been taken out of the Ember Inns division and rebranded in the Premium Country Dining Group, leaving only the Deri Inn in Rhiwbina as the sole Ember Inn in South Wales. Not that their website allows you to find though, type in 'Cardiff' and it does not show any pubs!

Still a good selection below:

India Pale Ales

Speciality Brews

Blonde Ales

  • Ringwood Boondoggle its name means perfect reason to have a pint, 4.2%
  • Caledonian Nectar with a real fruity and citrus taste, 4.3%
  • Hadley's Blonde from the brewery owned by Spandau Ballet's Tony Hadley, 4.0%
  • Northern Star ultra pale, ultra modern and ultra hoppy, 4.1%

Golden Ales

  • Golden Pippin a former CAMRA Yorkshire Champion ale, 3.9%
  • Fuller's Summer Ale light, smooth and refreshing served cold, 3.9%

Best Bitters

  • OSB Bronze medallist at the CAMRA Great British Beer Festival, 4.5%
  • Young Rev very well balanced and with nutty overtones, 3.7%
Although I would not class Freeminer Speculation as a 'Speciality' brew, nor Young Rev as a Best Bitter, or an IPA at 3.5% or Thatcher's Cider as a 'Speciality Brew' - cider is crafted not brewed!
