This Best Bitter Ale is our warm welcome to Autumn. A base of Pils malt teams up with Caramalt, a touch of Belgian "Special B" and 50% Munich malt gives a continental slant to this traditional English style. Biscuity and light-amber, bitter, piney and citrusy from a blend of East Kent Goldings, Cascade and Chinook hops - full-bodied and robust.

With this IPA we wanted to deliver something light, hazy and full of flavour, an AF beer to sing and shout about. We took what we have learned from the last year of brewing low/no beers and combined with a slower fermentation technique to deliver maximum flavour whilst retaining as much body as we could into such a little beer.

We wanted to create a light, crisp, punchy, go to beer! A beer that you know you can pick up and appreciate or simply get it down ya neck. Extra pale base malts are used to keep it crisp and give the hops a great platform to dance on. Masses of hop additions during the whirlpool and a huge dose of dry hops make this a brilliantly 'easy' IPA.

This porter started out as a recipe based on one from the Barclay Perkins brewery from 1855. We’ve tempered the roast character of the original recipe with some chocolate and crystal malts, but the main difference is that this is hopped in the way we would hop our pale ales and IPAs – late kettle additions and dry hopping. The result is a dark brown beer that promises coffee and cocoa, but then the hops bring lightness, brightness and fruit. Please note the hops change and the ABV varies from batch to batch but is usually between 5.6-6.3%.
