Greene King Ruddles County

4.30% ABV.

Ruddles County is famed for its dry, bitter flavour, which comes from using the rare Bramling Cross hops. Many liken the flavour to burnt toffee and caramel which, when combined with the dry bitterness, gives a very pleasing taste. It really is the ultimate bitter-lovers' bitter. Ruddles County has a light, inviting aroma of soft fruits and hops, and is a deep brown colour with warm, reddish tones. .

We have tried this beer 11 times.

We have given this beer an average score of Acceptable to Good.
