These hail from the part of the world (England, Ireland, Scotland) that coined the term “sessionable,” meaning beers that are well suited to drinking in larger quantities. The contemporary interpretation suggests less than five percent alcohol, but the ones from this region are known at all strengths for the understated complexity of their flavours, which evolve with every sip, maintaining the drinker’s interest even after a pint or three.
