The Sportsman

Brewed a deep copper colour, the Sportsman is a spiced winter ale with bursting bitterness and a touch of sweetness. With a combination of fresh oranges, delicate allspice and hints of clove, the Sportsman offers a subtle drop of winter that’s ideal for the long, dark nights and a pub session by the wood fire.

It's the 4th generation beer in our 170 Cask Ale series. Learn more about the story behind The Sportsman and the 170 cask ale programme

Goes Well With

Pistachio and Blossom Honey Baked Camembert

The full bitterness, slight sweetness and deep copper colour of the Sportsman perfect compliments the rich body of the camembert baked with pistachios and blossom honey to bring out the full flavours of both. The camembert is served with seeded breadsticks and a sticky fig and shallot chutney, ideal with the fresh oranges and delicate spice notes running through the Sportsman.
