I’m back to tasting and test organic beer which sounds good but I was a bit reticent about this one. Vintage Roots sent me a selection of beers and included in that was this River Cottage Stinger Organic Ale, made from nettles. Yep, organically grown hand-picked Dorset nettles.
Although I wouldn’t describe it the same, it is crisp, full of flavour and a really good drink. I couldn’t tell it was made from nettles at all, in fact it tastes more or less like any other beer, but a nice one at that. The bottle is also nicely designed and it exudes quality. It’s certainly a talking point among friends too.
River Cottage Stinger Organic Ale from Vintage Roots costs £2.30 for a 500ml bottle or £55.20 for 24 bottles.
