Woodforde's Brewery has created a new lager called Conquest, a 4.5% ABV beer described by the Norfolk brewer as 'refreshing and thirst-quenching'.

As part of an initial launch period, Conquest will be available on draught in specially selected pubs across East Anglia, with publicans able to order it in 30-litre kegs.

The Woodbastwick-based brewer plans to roll out Conquest in cans in 2019.

Woodforde's head brewer Neil Bain said: 'Conquest is a clean, crisp premium lager, with a glorious citrus finish and a full palate, which we're confident will make people want to come back for more.

'It's bold and bursting with modern hop varieties, making it our own take on a pub favourite, but with a contemporary twist – light, refreshing and thirst-quenching.'

Conquest is the first lager to be brewed under Woodforde's own brand, as it has previously fulfilled lager contracts for Marks and Spencer.
