Hertfordshire Craft Beer Review: Ramblers' Tipple from Saffron Brewery

Hertfordshire Craft Beer Review: Ramblers' Tipple from Saffron Brewery real ale pump clip
Welcome to the Shed. I am even-star and this is The Beer in Review. Today's Hertfordshire craft beer review is for Ramblers' Tipple from Saffron Brewery.

Share It!

Ramblers' Tipple from Saffron is a brown ale. Very mild. Malty and light caramel.  A good bitter evolving from a rather insipid sweet start. Nutty and astringent with a bit of walnut and maple. Not great but something for an older English bitter drinker. Grew on me but I wouldn't go out of my way.

Also they tricked me. I had thought that Saffron was an Essex brewery because there is a town in Essex called Saffron Walden. And for good reason. Essex used to be one of the major growers of the herb saffron to Europe. Alas no longer or we would all be rich. RICH I SAY!
