Tropical and berry fruits and some lemon citrus from the mix of hops is lifted by the light carbonation. Warming toffee/caramel from the crystal malt is balanced by the crisp bitterness
Perfect with English roasts or lamb kebabs.
We have made a slight change to our Ruddles Best ABV in bottle (alcohol by volume), reducing it by 0.3% from 3.7% to 3.4%. Rest assured, despite this small reduction in ABV Ruddles Best still has the same full flavour.
External events over the past few years have significantly increased costs for all brewers, from the price of energy needed for the brewing process, through to the price of malt, as well as packaging. The recent reforms to alcohol duty have added to this, so by crafting Ruddles Best in bottles to 3.4% rather than 3.7%, it allows us to combat some of these rising costs, while also enabling us to continue creating innovative new beers such as Ice Breaker, Level Head and Flint Eye.
We are proud of our brewers for delivering our 3.4% Ruddles Best in bottles, as extensive testing has shown that customers still enjoy the same quality and taste and rated it just as enjoyable.
Greene King continues to look at ways we can absorb some of those increasing costs to ensure we continue to offer our customers the same great value and taste of Ruddles Best.
