Titanic

The porters scurry around loading the passenger’s bags building up a tremendous thirst. When the day is done their preferred tipple is, like this beer, dark strong and well rounded. The richness of this rotund beer is brought to an even keel by the late addition of Goldings hops. Let this be your last port of call.

Absolution - 5.3%

Abbeydale

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.
