Sail & Anchor’s The Bloke

Sail & Anchor The Bloke

Sail & Anchor has partnered with Karl Strauss on a Limited Edition Red Ale. Called “The Bloke“, the latest limited edition seasonal release follows from ‘Jack Tar’, ‘Changing Tides’ and ‘Devil Dodger’. The red ale has a deep amber colour and an aroma of butterscotch, with warm caramel and toffee notes that make it ideal in the autumn months. On the palate, it is medium-bodied and toasty with a lingering bitterness. You’ll find it at on tap at Sail & Anchor Hotel in Fremantle, selected ALH venues across NSW, QLD, VIC and WA and at all Dan Murphy’s and BWS stores nationwide. RRP $8 for a 640mL bottle.
