An oat heavy malt bill for a viscous mouthfeel and low bitterness ensure this beer is true to the style. All that backed up by 12 grams per litre of beverage of Citra and Amarillo hops will be sure to keep them coming back for more.

Frozen Fresh Hop Citra - 4.8%

Wreckage - 7.2%

This sweet malty winter ale has a port-like aroma, oranges and lemons play around the edges of the tongue whilst dried fruit and cinnamon drive home the wonderful warming effect, the walnut aftertaste completes this slice of Christmas time in a glass.

Absolution - 5.3%



5.3% abv

Mid-straw coloured beer with aromas of tropical fruit and mangoes. The beer is sweet all the way through, balanced by some bitterness at the finish. Flavours are fruity with toffee apples and bananas. A clean tasting beer, sweetish but not cloying. Characteristic hop aromas come from British hops, but this is not too floral. Hints of lychee as it goes down. Very drinkable.
