This drink, which we define as a 'Citrus Hopped, Pale Ale' (a Pale Ale), has a strength of 4.2% ABV.
Old Mill brewery say that they 'are proud to announce our new charity beer ″12th Man″ is in partnership with Opening up cricket and Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) with £0.05 for every pint sold going to CALM.'
Further, they say that the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) is dedicated to preventing Male Suicide. Which is the single biggest killer of men under the age of 45 in the UK and takes 12 lives a day. Apparently, opening up Cricket promotes mental wellbeing and suicide prevention through cricket. It is a non profit organisation set up after the suicide of Sefton Park CC wicketkeeper Alex Miller by team mates wanting to start conversations about mental health to prevent further instances of suicide.
So with that in mind they have created a pale beer with a lovely citrus hopped finish. The beer is available from April onwards and the name comes from the cricket theme that the 12th man brings the drink on the field as well as the number of males under 45 whose lives are taken every day due to suicide.
