Bath Ales has extended its limited-edition ale Prophecy into a permanent addition to its range available across the on-trade.
Available only in Bath Ales’ own pubs until now, the 3.8% ABV beer can now be supplied for serving on draught. Dubbed a “New World pale ale”, it has a crisp light colour and a keen bitter finish. It is brewed using Columbus and Chinook hops which give it a fruity yet pine-like aroma and flavour.
Darren James, senior brewer at Bath Ales, said: “Prophecy is a dry, yet complex pale ale that will really challenge the taste buds. The new permanent beer has a low ABV which sets it in good stead as a session beer.
“Prophecy presents well on the bar, both in terms of colour and aroma, and has a hoppy, bitter finish which we’re confident will fulfil drinkers’ expectations.”
Bath Ales is also introducing enhanced pump-clip livery across its beers including Gem this month, making its trademark hare image more prominent.
Founded in 1995, Bath Ales operates a pub estate across Bristol, Bath and Cirencester. It has been part of family-owned St Austell Brewery since last July.
