A drive for tropical notes and fruity flavors is what makes this English beer so extraordinary. A combination of ripe grapefruit, blood oranges, and pineapples make the drink settle well with the flavors and aroma to give an overall experience from sip one. The slight bitterness of the drink adds a balance to the consumption. This English beer is the answer to why you deserve the best.

The 21 Pale Ale - Mosaic & Simcoe is a silver medal winner in the London Beer Competition and bright hope for the English ale making history.

The aroma fused well with the flavours and effects that a drinker will remember well for a long time. The fragrances of soy sauce and liquorice with a hint of vegetables and bitters of the coffee are added wisely to get the best out of the taste and flavours of the beer. The palate is quite savoury and smokey to contain all the ingredients that complement each other and an overall experience for consumption. To make you understand this in a much more simple way, here’s a drink from the UK that needs to be your choice of good times - you deserve the best.

The Porter has bagged a silver medal in the London Beer Competition only to make it clear, the drink knows what it’s doing and is doing it right.

The fragrance of coffee and dark chocolate for a bit bitter touch to the beer. Flavours that predominate the essence of dark chocolate with layers of herbs and spices. Smooth on the end chocolate malts leading up to a nutty and a bit roasted background. The finishing of this English beer is salivating that makes the drinker fall in love with it, all it takes is one sip.

The aroma with an undeniable waft of chocolaty-orange touch can bring a noticeable sweetness to the drink, which makes the drink so delicious.

An original session beer with ordinary Bitters forming a cornerstone of English drinking culture while carrying the legacy well. The subtle addition of sweetness while adding a touch of hop bitterness to the beverage on top of a perfectly well-balanced malt. The interpretation that is brought up to date with the use of US Chinook hops. The aromas are quite delicate from the Pine, spicy and dark fruits that are followed by a clean and smooth finish, and a full-bodied palate with the notes of Caramel and Biscuit. Tasty enough to make you understand how it ends up on this list.

The Ordinary Bitter got its producer a bronze medal again with its extraordinary taste and flavours excellent enough to claim the titles.

10. Blue Monkey Baboonska by Blue Monkey Brewery

A complex and delightful black Russian Imperial Stout with a soft creamy head, with a malt that is dark and rich with a touch of hops that give this strong beer a smoothness for the finishing. The notes of subtle sticky toffee and flavors from cocoa combined well with the drink that ages for 12 years in a scotch whisky oak barrel. The drink is an experience that needs to be taken into consideration for a drinker that is always open to new and amazing explorations.

The Blue Monkey Baboonska is a medal-winner beer from the London Beer Competition and has made the claims stand correct by backing it with the medal and hence deserves to be on the list of the drinks you must try.

The above-mentioned beers from the United Kingdom are all winners in the London Beer Competition 2021 and hence have made it to this list because of the experience they provide.
