Today’s review comes from Somerset based brewery The Wild Beer Co. and their big bodied pale ale ‘Bibble’
I’m a big fan of Pale Ales so was excited going into my first beer from this brewery. It has a lovely amber colour to it and good carbonation creating a nice white head. For me, a very pleasant nose with strong tropical notes to it. The beer itself is light and refreshing with a citrus tang to it. There is a lingering bitterness on the finish but not in a negative way at all, in fact it is quite moreish!
According to The Wild Beer Co. ‘Bibble’ is old Somerset dialect meaning to drink loudly, often and well, which I absolutely love. And at a nice 4.2% ABV I can definitely see myself sinking a few of these in the sun!
A quick note on the can art: I personally like the simplicity of the art and the colour scheme, however I feel it got lost on the shelves which is a shame, as people would be missing out on a lovely pale ale.
Overall ‘Bibble’ is a really decent pale ale, with good flavour and refreshing to drink. And at £1.80 I’d also say very good value. I’m very much looking forward to exploring some more of Wild Beer Co.’s selection in the future!
