Stockport-based brewery Robinsons has launched its first limited-edition seasonal beer of 2016.

Red Jester is a 3.9 per cent ruby red ale inspired by the Harlequin jester of medieval history, folk law and legend.

Robinsons said that the beer has a "distinctive blackcurrant flavour born from the new-fangled UK hop variety Jester". Jester boasts the same bold, punchy and citrus flavours that are so predominant in the US and New World hops, according to the family owned brewery, balanced by the bitterness of Target hops.

Robinsons added that the rich, full-bodied beer has a predominantly strong hop palate and a great balance of biscuit malt and caramelised toffee flavours.

"We're really proud of this ale and our entire 2016 range" said Gill Yates, brands manager for Robinsons Brewery.

"We've listened to our drinkers and worked hard on creating a series of seasonal beers that will capture the imagination as well as the taste buds. Red Jester is testament to that. Don't be fooled by the 3.9 per cent ABV, Red Jester seriously delivers when it comes to flavour."

Red Jester marks the first of five limited edition ales that the Stockport brewer will release in 2016.

Throughout February and March, Red Jester is available nationally via listings with Heineken, Enterprise Inns Carlsberg and Molson Coors and regionally via select Robinsons' pubs across the North West, Cumbria and North Wales.
