British-Style Barley Wine Ale Beer

British-Style Barley Wine Ale is a strong, rich beer with a complex flavour profile. It is typically brewed with British hops and British malt, which give it a characteristic English flavour.

Barley Wine Ales are typically high in alcohol content, often exceeding 10% ABV. They are typically dark amber or brown in colour and may have a slightly sweet flavour due to the use of British crystal malt. Some British-Style Barley Wine Ales are aged in wooden barrels, which helps to develop their complex flavour profile even further. This is a perfect choice for lovers of strong, flavorful beer.
