Continuing my reviews of organic and environmentally friendly beers is a carbon neutral beer from Adnams. East Green is made in Southwold in Suffolk which Adnams claims is the most energy efficient brewery in the UK. Coupled with a lightweight bottle and local ingredients, add a tiny bit of offsetting and you have a carbon neutral beer.
Made with Maris Otter malted barley and Boadicea hops, the brew is 4.3% and is quite light and refreshing. The flavours aren’t particularly strong, I could slightly detect the citrus flavour it claims to have but generally there wasn’t a lot of flavour to talk about. But it’s crisp and smooth which led me to wanting another which I suppose is the whole idea of a beer.
Available in supermarkets and pubs, you can find it online but going to Adnams’ website here. It costs around £1.79 for a 500ml bottle.
