A dry hopped, robust Pale Ale named after the author of 'Rights of Man', who was an Excise Officer in Lewes between 1768-1774. Originally released for Independence Day, twenty-five years ago, it launched the concept of seasonal brews 'for one month only' and celebrated independent brewers.
Soft, slightly sweet with a dry aftertaste akin to an infusion of ground nuts. It is refreshing, hydrating and comforting. 'Liquid bread' in every sense.
Finest Maris Otter malted barley is supplemented with a dash of Crystal malt for balance. Our hops are a blend of four different local varieties, to give a distinctive hoppy finish.
Premium malted barleys and local aroma hops combine to create a beer that is light and refreshing. Fragrant hop flavours impart a full but delicate bitterness to this classic table beer.
Armada Ale was one of the first new 'Golden Ales' that emerged in the 1980s. It has a pronounced yet balanced hop character, derived from Fuggle and Golding hops. Robust, refreshing and still a port of call in any beer-drinker's voyage of discovery.
