This blonde brew delivers a collection of flavours that mingle in the mouth combined with just the right amount of bitterness. We’ve deliberately used hops with a low alpha level, which means we can use a lot more of them. It’s this delicate balance that gives it such a wonderful ‘hoppy bouquet’. There are more hops in here than you’d think!
We’re big fans of dark beers. Our Oatmeal Stout tastes delicious and feels wonderful to drink. The oatmeal creates a softness in your mouth with a lovely, creamy head. It’s soft and rounded and coats the whole of your mouth giving you coffee, chocolate and dark smoke aromas. It's not heavy or thick – just a well-balanced, delicious beer!
It’s the Maris Otter base combined with crystal malt (traditionally used in dark beers) that gives this brew its distinctive red gold colour and sweet taste. The hops follow on to build on the flavour and present you with a beautiful balanced finish. Spun Gold has just been awarded Beer of the Year by our local CAMRA branch.
Citadel is a fantastic, easy drinking hoppy beer. It’s really refreshing and packed with flavour. At 3.8% it’s an ideal session ale. We’ve used Styrian hops to provide a light aromatic bitterness with spicy and earthy notes. The Citadel in Carlisle and Carlisle Citadel Railway Station are highly impressive buildings in the centre of the city – we really hope you’ll be impressed with our Citadel too!
