Leicestershire female brewing team create new beer for Everards, of Enderby
A beer developed by a group of female licensees has been launched in pubs across the county.
The six-strong team of Everards licensees developed the aptly-named Malty Tasker ale after taking part in a three-day course run by the Enderby-based brewery.
Everards described the result as a 5 per cent golden blonde ale, brewed with challenger and saaz hops with fruity characters, a citrus zest and a complex body.
It is only the second time in the history of the Everards Gold Course, which gives advanced beer and cellar management training, that all of the delegates learning how to create their own beer were women.

Malty Tasker went on sale in a handful of pubs last year and proved so popular it has been rolled out across Everard's more than 170 pubs.
Of the six licensees, three were from Leicestershire while the others run pubs based in Nottinghamshire.
The Leicestershire brewers were Helen Foster, of the Bulls Head, in Clipston, Dawn Moore, who runs the Coach and Horses, in Lubenham, and Sarah Cunnington, of the Black Horse, in Aylestone.
Helen said Malty Tasker was proving popular with her customers.
"It's gone down really well in our pub with men and women," she said. "I didn't know anything about brewing before I went on the course and found it all really interesting.
"It was brilliant to get an end result like this – it went so well last year that Everards have brought it back and obviously it's down to them to look at the success this time as to whether it continues to be an ongoing ale."
Graham Giblett, head brewer at Everards, said: "The female brewsters have come up with a great beer, which as well as being their personal tribute to female versatility is a great tasting ale.
"It was only available for a limited period last year in a small number of pubs but was very popular. I am sure it will be as well received this year."
