Inspired by our Head Brewer Sam’s time in Germany we give you this 4 Malt brew with 3 hop varieties from the USA and Germany.
These single hop pale ales were designed to showcase some of our favourite hops. This is a clean, refreshing, pale ale with a perfect balance of malt and hop. French grown Bouclier hops are a real all-rounder with nice bittering and a nice aroma. It’s what you’d get in a classic French Blonde. It’s citrussy, floral, a little bit spicy and herby.
A rich, dark ale (R.D.A). Made with crystal and chocolate malts along with roasted barley. An ale that tastes superb and is extremely moreish with a glorious cappuccino aftertaste. Named after 'Earl' the sunflower emblem of the Earl Mountbatten Hospice. 10p for every pint sold will be donated to the Hospice by the Island Brewery.
Pale copper, lightly hopped, easy drinking session beer.
Traditional India Pale Ale style, robust in character, nicely bitter but balanced with an intense floral hop flavour. Subtle hints of grapefruit on the aroma.
Your new best beer garden buddy – a lazy, hazy, generously hopped and endlessly quaffable tastebud treat, made with long summer days and hot summer nights in mind.
A golden lager with a full malty body, balanced by an elegant hoppy bite and a crisp, refreshing finish. The drink of choice in the biergartens of this great city, this classic Helles lager is Bavaria’s most popular lager.
Mellow and smooth, with crisp grains, vanilla, waxy orange and a very light whiff of cacao nibs. A light, crisp and refreshing Munich Lager.
A perfectly balanced, refreshing, medium cider named after the rich red soil that gives our orchards their distinctive quality.
Smooth and sophisticated mango cider made with an ample portion of mango juice and Somerset cider.
Lilley's Lemon and Lime cider is a refreshing blend of tangy citrus fruits and crisp Somerset cider to awaken your taste buds, a real taste of summer.
A more challenging cider for the connoisseur. Again, Dabbinett apples feature highly in the blend along with other traditional bitter sweets such as Harry Masters and Ellis bitters. Not so dry as to be unpleasant, just slightly sweeter to ensure a crisp balanced cider where all the flavors really shine through.
This gorgeous coloured cider is one of the most popular and different sweet ciders you can get – medium tangy rhubarb blended with a gentle vanilla sweetness. Like a liquid version of rhubarb crumble and ice cream.
Artisan cider made by selecting the best local fruit combined with years of experience to craft ciders that our traditional, yet suit the modern palate. The sweet tasty Pineapple is balanced out by the tangy Grapefruit. English cider with a tropical twist!
A full bodied, dry cider that will appeal to the discerning palate. Long on taste, it has been special fermented using age old techniques to guarantee a clear cider with distinct personality.
Deep copper colour, brewed using 5 Malts including some German. 2 American hop varieties make this a palate filling session ale that goes really well on the front at Leigh-on-sea with a pint of Leigh’s own cockles.
The colour of summer barley and bursting with fresh hop aroma. A permanent feature in our coldroom because we all like reminding of summer. A refreshing blend of English and American hops dominate this easy drinking session ale.
Light in colour, aromatic on the nose, but a bitter bite on the tongue! Brewed with Simcoe, Citra, Mosaic and Centennial.
Black as Satan’s heart. We used 5 English malts and 1 hop variety to brew this devilishly moreish venomous reptile of a beer. If you are of a weak disposition or not too fond of snakes don’t get close enough to let this bad boy bite you.
Brewed using only Maris Otter pale malt for a light golden ale with biscuity malt flavours. Mount Hood and First Gold hops give a distinctive citrus character along with a long dry bitter finish.
A superb premium golden ale with wonderful aromas of Amarillo hops and a lasting spicy and orangy flavour. Cara malt provides a little burnished colour, but the light body belies its strength. Dangerously drinkable!
A light and fragrant ale dominated by the scents of spring cherry blossom and acacia. It is in a delicate balance of floral notes and bitterness leaving a clean finish.
The return of a favourite! There’s nothing quite like the extraordinarily pungent character which the US Mosaic hop brings to this pale beer. Incomparably more-ish!
This beautifully British ale is single hopped with Bramling Cross and packs a real fruity punch with hints of blackcurrant.
Very pale with delicious (and outrageously expensive!) US Amarillo hops, which are earthily aromatic and the beer, highly drinkable. Yakima Valley is the area of Washington State in which the hops are grown.
A crazy eight different malts make up this all British hopped black ale. It's a moreish, dark and sumptuously smooth ale with hints of smoke, chocolate and nuttiness.
