Keltek Brewery

Beheaded (7.5% ABV, bottle)
Amber/red, with a tan head that stays faily well, this has a malty and nutty aroma, with a vague hint of red apple skin. It drinks like a good old-fashioned West Country best bitter, certainly not giving an impression of being as strong as it is. There’s a rich fruity sweetness about it, with big caramel notes and a gentle bittersweet finish. It’s pretty good, in that pleasingly old-fashioned way.
Buy it: Mine was a Christmas gift. It’s available in the brewery’s online shop.

King (5.1% ABV, bottle)
Polished amber with a thick, foaming, slightly off-white head, this has an aroma of bready malt and orange peel. On the palate, it has a lot of the qualities of a traditional best bitter, but slightly lighter in tone. There’s a caramel note to the malt, with some nuttiness, but fruitiness, too, with orange and even a little strawberry. A decent traditional style pint.

Keltek King

Magik (4% ABV, bottle)
Very slightly hazy, light amber, with a slightly off-white head, this yields little apart from bready malt on the nose. On the palate, there’s a good balance of that malt and fragrant, citrussy hops. Gentle bitterness on the finish. A decent, classic style session bitter.
