Real Ale at the Royal Oak York

abbot_ale_ real_ale
Abbot Ale is a popular beer in permanent residence at the Royal Oak. ABV 5% with an earthy malty taste.
best_bitter_theakstons_real_ale
Theakston’s Best Bitter is our best selling session ale in permanent residence at the Royal Oak. The combination of dryness as generated through the use of Target and Challenger hops, is balanced by sweetness created by the generous use of prime malting Barley providing the perfect accompaniment to a wide variety of food flavours . 3.8% ABV
old_peculier_theakstons_real_ale
The legend; Old Perculier at the Royal Oak. 5.6%ABV. Old Peculier is a beautiful, yet very simple beer, brewed using a very generous blend of finest pale, crystal and roasted barley with two bitter hops combined with the majestic and noble ‘Fuggle’ hop to produce a beer of awesome full-bodied flavour with subtle cherry and rich fruit overtones. It tastes superb when accompanied by rich stews, strong cheeses and sweet puddings.
