Senior Brewer Ewan Sneddon enjoying a pint of Ram Tam.

Ram Tam

4.3% ABV

A dark, strong beer that has a reputation as a ‘Winter Warmer’. Wholesome and satisfying, this mellow beer has body and depth, leaving a pleasant fruity afterglow.

The Landlord’s Crucial Role.

We’re often asked by publicans why our beer takes longer to settle. The answer lies in what our brewers like to call a ‘vigorous secondary fermentation’.

This extra conditioning in the cask results in a cleaner, clearer, crisper beer. It means you sometimes have to wait for forty eight hours for the beer to drop bright, but we think the wait is worth it for the taste, and drinkers seem to agree.

We still brew our beers without compromise the traditional Taylor’s way. By hand with Knowle Spring water from our brewery well. Still with the finest Golden Promise barley grown specially for us. Still with whole flower hops from our expert growers. And still with our own special strain of Taylor’s yeast. We know it’s the hard way, but as we say, we do it all for that taste of Taylor’s.

Thanks to the landlords and publicans who also put in the extra time and effort to serve it.

Our Brewer’s Notes

ramtam-tabletop-finished_work_f2

Mild chocolate and roasty malts, with a bit of citrus. Light but very pleasant and well balanced. A perfect dark mild for session drinking.
