In a nutshell: A malty and bittersweet Strong Ale from Devon's Exeter Brewery.
The lowdown: MC6 is a small batch limited edition ale. With it's deep ruby red colour there are rich, malty and fruit aromas running right through which combine with bittersweet caramel and red berry flavours. A big mouthfilling ale that's great in the winter months.
Founded in 2003 on the Exminster Marshes nature reserve the brewery came under its current ownership in 2007 at a time when craft brewing was exanding rapidly. Their original beer, and still one of their best sellers, was Ferryman a classic copper coloured best bitter. This was followed by Avocet a more modern style of citrussy golden ale and Devon's first organic real ale. In 2013 they relocated to new premises in the heart of Exeter which has allowed them to further extend operations and they are now very the main brewery of Devon's county town.
