The concept was to create a juicy tropical beer. A brew you can sit on and drink all day, rammed with juicy malts and huge tropical aromas of mango and grapefruit. Massive additions of American hops are added to the whirlpool giving huge hop flavour. The beer is then dry hopped for days, driving the punchy aromas so you can smell it from miles away!
Three big-hitting hops come together to create a sessionable, hop-forward pale ale with the intensity of a new world IPA. Amarillo and Simcoe from the USA work in harmony with New Zealand’s Nelson Sauvin to produce a punchbowl aroma of lemon, tangerine and gooseberry, followed by a balanced grapefruit bitterness. Vegan friendly.
A citrus dominated India Pale Ale, its immediate impression is soft and smooth yet builds to a crescendo of massive hoppiness accentuated by honey. An enduring, bitter finish.
Our award-winning take on the classic American-style IPA. A fruity blend of our favourite exotic hops from all the world combine to create this hop-forward delight. Citrus and vibrant floral aromas are meticulously balanced with the full-bodied and crisp flavours of the finest English Maris Otter barley malt, forging a truly unmatchable and refreshing summer ale. Always have more fun with a Blonde in your hand!
Based on a 19th century recipe, this traditional beekeepers ale is light in colour with fruity notes and a hint of sweetness to compliment the dry hoppy taste. Brewed using our own natural spring water, 100% Maris Otter floor malted barley, top fermenting ale yeast, specially selected honeys and pure English hops.
A black beer - smooth and well structured, brimming with roasted chocolate taste and aroma from the combination of four different malts, producing a long, dry bitter finish.
A crisp, sparkling sunflower gold ale with a striking hop profile. Dry and refreshing with a long citrus aromatic finish. Hops: Citra and Amarillo.
House bitter developed to meet the tastes of the regular patrons of The Jolly Crispin. There they like their beers pale, with a slight citrus flavour and bitter, this is by far the bitterest ale we make.
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.
A light refreshing beer with pungent grapefruit, lychee and gooseberry aromas leading to a dry, bitter finish.
Intensely hoppy and full-bodied golden best bitter. Tropical fruit flavours provide a counterpoint to the grapefruit hoppy character. An abiding dryness develops.
