    Bought this for a friends birthday, he said he enjoyed it so will grab myself a keg soon

  2. Nick (verified owner)

    Delicious, refreshing and super fresh pale ale. This is a great price delivered for 9 pints and I will definitely be buying this again.

  3. Lucian Gaudoin (verified owner)

    Absolutely love this this stuff for quaffing. Easily scoffed a keg while watching the rugby over the weekend (All 3 matches BTW). I occasionally pop a slice of lime into the glass to enhance the tropical flavours.

    You’ll have to travel a long way and search hard to find a better Pale Ale and at 4.5% it stands out amongst others in its class. Top find at WBB

  5. Roy France (verified owner)

    One of many great products from WBB.
    Detour is a favourite but looking forward to
    summer months and more Dance Hall 💪🏻

    Picked up one-off these for super Saturday on this years 6 nations. Well I was thoroughly surprised. Clean crisp with a hoppy aftertaste. Without any of that metallic aftertaste that the likes of brewdog can leave.

    Will be getting more of this.

    One of my favourite WBB beers as it sits, for me at least, somewhere between the bitters and the lager/pilsner from WBB, all of which I like. It has a crisp, fruity taste, not too strong

  8. Sue (verified owner)

    Utterly delicious. Hands down my favourite pale ale. Crisp, delicious and incredibly quaffable. Highly recommended.

  9. Neil Hughes (verified owner)

    Lovely fresh-tasting with a bit of zing. It’s great cold – or should I say cool – definitely not from the fridge!

  10. Gareth (verified owner)

    Lovely stuff this. Discovered it last summer and it has become a go to “house ale”. Not too strong or hoppy so very quaffable. Perfect for sitting outside with a BBQ, or indoors watching the rugby. I really like the fact that it comes in cans. Easier to store and keep cool. All in all a lovely beer

    Discovered this beer a few weeks ago when it arrived in a selection of 12 cans of various beers. Loved it so much I bought 2 Mini Kegs which went down very well. A pleasant change from my normal Bitter beer – also light and easy to drink.

    Absolute belter , crisp, fruity … real crowd pleaser !

  13. Craig Brown (verified owner)

    On these hot summer days, a chilled Detour is hard to beat. Full of flavour, but not too heavy. Crisp and light. Super drop.

  14. Glenn Jarrett (verified owner)

    Too nice, too tempting to have in the fridge. Wish I didn’t like it so much. Well done WBB!

  15. James (verified owner)

    Light and dry very pale ale with a touch of citrus bitterness

  16. Raymond Little (verified owner)

    A nice modern style pale ale with a bitter finish.

  17. James Eaton (verified owner)

    This is a fabulous beer. Not sickly/bitter as some modern IPA can be, Detour is smooth and zingy and the fridge pack lasted all of one evening. Brilliant.

    I first tried this pale ale at the Foodie Festival this summer in Oxford, really nice beer and easy to drink.

  19. Rhys (verified owner)

    Bought some cans as part of an offer and glad I did. Very tasty and very drinkable

  20. Stephen Feldwick (verified owner)

    Lovely easy drinking pale ale, not too heavy but still packs an abundance of flavour. First rate service and delivery from WBB as ever.

  21. Peter Maidment (verified owner)

    A great, easy-drinking, crisp pale ale. One for the favourite list in my garden bar!
