A rich dark ale infused with blackberries. Still very much a porter rather than a fruit beer but the berries add a lovely twang.
A German classic with a Scottish twist, causing a stir amongst discerning craft ale enthusiasts. 'Alt', as this kind of beer is often called, means 'old' and refers to a style which pre-dates lagers. It is a dark, malty beer with a decent dose ofGerman hops. Düsseldorf in West Germany is home to the style where it’s still made in brewpubs in the old town and beyond.
Hazy, golden, hoppy, citrus IPA. Collaboration brew with Steel Coulson, Edinburgh.
Raspberry Berliner Weisse - A fruity twist on a classic German Berliner Weisse. Aroma of wild raspberry giving way to subtle lemon and yoghurt-like flavours supported by tart fresh raspberries and an underlying lactic sourness.
Anglo-American IPA with mango aroma and flavour with grapefruit and multi-layered tropical fruits, amber gold colour in colour, naturally hazy. A powerhouse of a beer with masses of flavour. Using rich American Cascade, Chinook hops and dry-hopped with Centennial.
A balanced and gently spiced, easy-like-Sunday-morning pale ale.
A well balanced, smooth session lager with a robust and hoppy taste. Brewed exclusively for the UK market. Pilsner has a smooth aromatic hop taste. It is a cool refreshing session beer with an intense yellow, golden appearance. A truly authentic Bavarian imported session lager and an antidote to the current trends around the UKs mainstream lager brands.
An unfiltered, unpasteurised lager with a difference. We use San Francisco Lager yeast fermented at ale temperatures to release delicate fruity esters, whilst Vienna malt is used to give the beer a hint of sweetness.
Versa Weisse Beer has a hazy orange/bronze colour with a big fluffy head of foam leading to a classic weisse aroma of cloves, bubblegum and banana. The beer is spicy, herbal, fruity and tart in the mouth with more of a hop attack than is normal for the style. As well as banana, there’s also a powerful hint of apple. The finish is long, quenching and complex, with banana and bubblegum to the fore but with a good solid underpinning of rich malt, spices and hops.
Schmankerl means ‘delicacy’ or ‘treat’ in the Bavarian dialect. In order to achieve the classic Hefeweizen character we don't use generic dried yeast but propagate a genuine Bavarian strain ourselves. Schmankerl is a cloudy wheat beer with notes of banana and cloves. The blue and white label reflects Bavarian colours, the region that produces the most diverse beers in Germany.
A new British hop developed by hop merchants Charles Faram of Malvern that brings New World-style tropical intensity of flavours. Fruit flavours and aromas, including mango, grapefruit and passionfruit. Complex bitterness with citrus and tropical fruit. The ninth in our occasional series of varietal beers designed to showcase the hop characteristics. Collaboration with our Scottish sister business Steel Coulson Tap.
Never has a cider with more maturity and character been exposed to the public taste buds.
A smooth elegant cider with hints of oranges, the glamorous star amongst Dorset Nectar's award winning ciders.
A mellow easy going cider from a blend of cider and dessert apples. As the name suggests, our 4.5% blend is based on the Harry Master’s Jersey apples sourced straight from the farm in Somerset. Towards the sweeter end of the scale, with enough character to be different but not too challenging.
