Otter Ale Case (4.5%)

(182 customer reviews)


12 x 500ml bottles
SKU: f29b38f160f8 Category:


4.5% ABV. A premium ale with full flavour and a fair strength. Mahogany in colour with malty aroma and hints of fruit.

Otter Ale is where it all started. A premium ale must have full flavour and a fair strength without compromise. These two characteristics must be so cleverly balanced, that when the glass is returned to the table after that first slurp, a sigh of appreciation should be heard around the bar.

Imagine a piece of beautifully polished mahogany and you’ve got the deep, rich tones of Otter Ale. The malty aroma and hints of fruit provide a first clue to the flavour but the taste goes further and finishes in a strong combination of fruit and some bitterness.

    This is a birthday present for my husband. I can’t comment on the taste as I don’t drink it. He, on the other hand seems to be very pleased.

  5. Christopher (verified owner)

    Brilliant product and service

  6. Carol (verified owner)

    Although there was a slight hiccup on delivery (down entirely to the delivery company) the beer was received safe and sound. It is my husbands favourite and as we are in isolation, it is very welcome.

  7. Christopher Ellyatt (verified owner)

    Excellent service ☺️ excellent Ale, good strength and a wonderful drink to have in the garden mulling over the bizarre virus ridden world.

  21. Matthew Sparks (verified owner)

    Just as fantastic as the bitter, with a bit more depth and welly. OTTER is my favourite brewery, and I have sampled many, far and wide

  22. Malcolm Lee (verified owner)

    My beer drinking pals get fed up with my facebook postings when saying I was in a particular pub drinking Otter Ale (well up to this isolating business that is) so I thoroughly enjoyed posting a photo of my delivery of 12 bottles the other day. Thank you. Cheers.

    Tried Otter Ale at the Burley Inn, within days I’d ordered 2 cases from Otter Brewery. Arrived quick and not too carbonated like other bottles you can get from supermarket. Although these are more expensive. Overall very satisfied – I’ve found a new favourite.

    I’ll definitely be ordering more now I know it’s available online.
