All out of ale
The draught version of an ale brewed by Timothy Taylor to commemorate its 150th anniversary sold out within days. The one-off brew of Celebration Ale went on sale at the end of February. However, a limited amount of a bottled version of the ale is still available. The 5% abv ale was created by head brewer Peter Eells. He described the beer as, "a strong amber ale with a rich golden colour, robust hoppy aroma and full malty taste".
