An interesting concept for sure. The simple but eye catching plain white label and title piqued my interest. The idea of using unsold bread to brew beer and prevent food waste was even more intriguing.
Pours a golden color with a silky head that retains well.
The aroma was a combination of toasted malt and citrusy, fruity aromas that seemed to foretell a pleasantly and moderately hopped Ale.
And then came the taste. In the mouth it was medium bodied with a smooth malt feel. However, the finish was oddly sour and lemon like, so much it stood out above much else.
A strange brew that seems to be miscategorized, although what style it actually might be eludes me. I was able to get through it as it's drinkable. Average overall.

Honestly surprised what someone can do with left over bread. As most ales, the bitter hops come and greet your mouth with crispness, but it is not overbearing. The fruitiness is not apparent at first but comes in peacefully joined by a medium to thick body. Once the beer is swallowed the bitterness is gone and you are left wanting to savor another sip.

Zesty, refreshing pale ale with a rich malt base balanced by a spicy hop bite. Medium body. Would buy again.

Surprisingly good given it's brewed with unsold loaves from bakeries and unused crusts from sandwich makers.

Brewed by Hambleton Ales.

Lovely fruity beer, that is crisp and manages to capture some of the flavours of the toast from which it was brewed. It fights food waste too, and since I work in a food waste kitchen, it's definitely going to have to be my new beer!
