As if they didn’t have enough to do in Cobbs Farm Shop at Bath Road, Hungerford, they’ve now developed their own beer after teaming up with West Berkshire Brewery.

So meet Goldy Horn, a lovely golden hoppy treat, now on sale there. It’s a great chilled beer to enjoy with a chunk of farmhouse Cheddar, that’s for sure… but one of us at the magazine did something that will probably horrify ale enthusiasts when Cobbs sent us a trial bottle. We added a splash of lemonade and made a beautiful summer shandy! That was delicious, too.

For the specialists, Goldy Horn (4% abv) is similar in style to a traditional IPA with a mild bitterness, leaving a light sweetness on the palate. It’s been brewed using exclusively British products using traditional methods and in small batches to ensure absolute consistency and best possible quality. The price is £2.75 a bottle, cases of 12 at £27.
