Pleasantly bitter, red coloured session beer with a smoothness that belies its aggressive ancestors! A brilliant ruby red colour, deliciously perfumed with hints of spiciness. Rich hop fruits giving way to a clean dry refreshing floral hop bitterness.
Brewed in honour of the mascot of the now defunct Staffordshire Regiment and his handler. Colour Sergeant Watchman III, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier, was a regular at the Brewery tap, until his death in June 1998, but never drank on duty. Hops used are Challenger.
A simple, well balanced hybrid IPA. Made with lager and ale malts, for a beautifully balanced IPA-Lager hybrid beer.
Hard to categorise as a stout or old ale. Sweetish roast malt taste leads to a long lasting roasted, slightly bitter finish. Rich fruity nose balanced by flavours of chocolate, dried fruit and figs.
The ale started out in 1996 as a winter-only brew. However, the rich malty character and well-balanced hop aroma proved so popular, we decided to make it available all year round. Creamy, full-bodied and smooth, Blaven is also somewhat deceptive - the strongest of our regular ales.
Single hopped pale ale bursting with the characteristic orange and grapefruit citrus flavours of the Amarillo hop.
A simple, well balanced ruby ale. Smooth, malty and sweet, good body with plenty of hoppy aroma - not so dark, not so strong, not so bitter - just right.
Bitter with a faint flowery aroma and a moderately fruity, malty taste. The finish is long but pleasantly bitter with some sweetness and dryness.
A full-bodied, very distinctive beer with a bitter-sweet aftertaste.
A traditional style of ale typical of the East of Scotland. A superb classic with a deep copper hue and light bronze creamy foam. 80/- is brewed using Belhaven yeast and allowed to ferment at a slightly higher temperature. This delivers satisfying malt flavours and layers of soft fruit with a toffee finish.
American pale ale with Maris Otter and Caramalt in the mash giving a deep golden colour. Centennial and Northern Brewer at the end of the boil adds hop forward depth with a low bitterness. Mosaic in the whirlpool and dry-hop adds tropical fruit flavours.
A clean golden bitter ale with an underlying biscuit flavour and zesty, zingy, citric aroma and aftertaste.
A distinctive, full flavoured beer with a sweeter finish. Brewed with English Maris Otter, Crystal, and Wheat malts, with Pilgrim and Cascade hops.
