A KEIGHLEY brewery has produced a new tipple to celebrate its 160th anniversary.

Timothy Taylor has launched 1858, a modern take on a brown ale.

The brew is part of the Knowle Spring firm's new Taylor Made range.

1858 is a rich, 5.3 per cent ABV chestnut-brown ale, described as having hints of toffee, marmalade and creamy coffee.

Head brewer Andrew Leman and his team spent several months developing the ale, experimenting with different malts, hop varieties and styles of beer.

The Taylor Made range, including 1858, was well received at a leading craft beer festival in London.

Mr Leman said: "We are proud to be a Society of Independent Brewers assured British craft brewer, which gives ale drinkers the confidence to trust the provenance and authenticity of our beers.

"This is particularly important as more and more craft breweries are bought and operated by large industrial brewers.

"At Taylor's we have always put the quality of our beer first and always will.

"We hope drinkers will enjoy our new Taylor Made range as much as we have enjoyed developing it."

1858 is available in cask until the end of October, when it will make way for Poulter's Porter in the run-up to Christmas.

It can be obtained in 330ml bottles all year round.
