Traditional style ale brewed with Norfolk's finest Maris Otter barley which is malted by Crisp maltsters just 18 miles from the farm. This produces a distinctive English malt sweetness and character that sets the perfect base for the hops. Challenger hops provide the noticeable but rounded bitterness with more English classics First Gold and Goldings balancing the act giving hints of spice running alongside floral and citrus aromas.

£4.20 pint

A beautifully bright copper colour, this beer has a fresh bouquet of floral notes as well as mango and passionfruit. A perfectly balanced malty backbone with subtle sweetness, a gentle bittering note followed by high notes of tropical fruits and grassy tones. Keeping the story true to its era we've used heritage English malt Chevallier, English hops Olicana and Harlequin and fermented with London Ale III yeast. Morale is delicate and designed with balance and sessionability at the forefront. Ronald Pattinson, the great beer historian shared his 1940s IPA recipe with us. From the base recipe we adjusted it to modern brewing techniques but kept the concept true.

Our pals at Low Key paid a visit to the Vault City brewery to collaborate with us on something very special. We both wanted a big beer but a sessional ABV, so that's exactly what we did. Expect sweet flavours of chocolate and vanilla layered with delicately tart cherries. The addition of Tonka beans creates an amazing aroma, amplifying vanilla and cherry notes. With every sip you can almost picture the irresistible black forest gateau that inspired this decadent, but sessionable, pastry sour.

Traditional East Anglian Cider has always been made from sweet and sharp apples. We have been making this cider for over 30 years and over this time, our methods have changed very little. We've only ever used one simple ingredient - organic apples. These are pressed in the autumn, put into wooden whisky barrels and allowed to ferment, using only the wild yeasts present on the apple skins. When the fermentation has finished we are left with a fresh, dry and slightly sharp cider which, after continuing to mature over the winter months in barrels, also takes on some interesting oak characteristics.
