Palmerston’s Folly 5% – Draught Beer
PALMERSTON’S FOLLY 5.0%
Named after the Portsdown Hill forts. By the time construction of the forts was finally completed in 1868, France clearly had no intentions of making war on Britain and the forts had only limited strategic use. Ever since then this massive scheme of fortifications has become known as “Palmerston’s Folly.” The beer is a SUTHWYK wheat and barley beer, using Saaz and Styrian Goldings hops. Although it has 40% wheat in the malt it is a clear wheaty beer with a dryness that you would expect and a hint of honey in the after taste.
