A multiple award-winning celebration of strong traditional brewing, brewed faithfully to a heritage Burton-Upon-Trent IPA recipe, dating from the early 1800’s. Govinda pays homage to the highly-hopped pale ales that were shipped to India to slake the thirst of the English Raj.
2018 Great Taste® 3-star award-winning Organic Plumage Archer edition is brewed with the organically grown heritage variety Barley: Plumage Archer (originally grown between 1905 to sometime in the 1950's) and hopped with Ernest, Early Keyworth & Jester. The result is an award-winning combination of tropical fruit aromas, citrus, a high bitterness & lots of peaches, pears and honey with peppery spice.
One of only a handful of beers made in the UK using the Organic Plumage Archer Malt.
This beer is unfiltered, unpasteurised and finings-free. Vegan & Vegetarian-friendly.
|Available in 500ml bottles as singles, 6-pack or 12-pack.

Great Taste® Judges said:
"An intense bitterness but still smooth, big flavoured but balanced, rounded and delicious. When you go back a second and third time and find new flavours like citrus, it makes you remember why they brewed IPAs in the first place: to withstand a sea crossing. In Calcutta they used to say 'it has ripened.'
Great clarity and carbonation. We loved the nose - peaches and cream - which carried through to the palate. We also loved the subtle complex flavours of red apple, peach and honey, and the huge bitter finish."
