Freshly picked peak season Prima Donna hops courtesy of Thanet Hop Collective 'Hop-Along' provide a heady aroma of candied citrus peel, cedar and green tea. We've kept the malt base simple to let the vibrant fresh hops shine. A gentle pithy bitter finish makes this a perfect pint. Instead of using hops that have been dried, beer is used using fresh or green Kentish hops.

A Munich Helles style lager that's low in bitterness and brewed using Extra Pale, Cara and Munich malts for just a hint of maltiness. We brew it using a traditional bottom fermenting lager yeast and hop it principally with German Saaz. We also add a small amount of some zesty American hops at the end, just for a little zing. Not too much so that it strays into Pale Ale territory, but just enough to tickle the tastebuds. Gluten free and vegan friendly.
