Joshua Tetley & Son has introduced its first range of bottled ales in four years. The range includes Tetley’s No.3 Pale Ale, which was launched in cask format earlier this year and is brewed exclusively at Leeds Brewery. The recipe for No.3 Pale Ale is inspired by the original recipe that was initially brewed in Leeds in 1868, and plucked from Tetley’s extensive beer archive, spanning over 200 years.
Giving drinkers a unique taste of the 19th century, Tetley’s No.3 Pale Ale (4.2% ABV) features a logo inspired by the original artwork and is unusual for a pale ale by modern standards as it uses entirely English hops to create a beer that has been designed to be full flavoured, crisp and refreshing. English Pale Ale malt is used to provide the body and colour and a mixture of Pilgrim, Brewers Gold and Goldings hops provide bitterness and aroma – giving a surprisingly modern taste. Tetley’s unique double strain yeast pulls the combination together.
Emily Hudson, Brand Manager for Tetley’s, comments: “We are thrilled to launch No.3 Pale Ale in bottle form for the first time and are delighted to bring the range to our customers. We’re proud that No.3 continues to be brewed exclusively at Leeds Brewery in Tetley’s homeland, within a mile of where it would have originally been brewed 150 years ago.”
The 500ml bottles, which cost £1.75, are now be stocked in Ocado, Nisa, BP, Costcutter and Spar, and also includes Tetley’s Golden Ale – a contemporary beer full of flavour that blends cutting edge hop varieties to create a sprightly citrus ale.
