Powerful fruitiness, with flavours reminiscent of redcurrants, raspberries and strawberries intermingled with citrus notes. The fruitiness is balanced out by the famous Ruddles bitterness and by a delicate aroma.
A malty multiple-winner of CAMRA’s Champion Premium Beer of Britain, our much loved XXXB is what you’d call an English tawny beer. Just like the first batch we crafted in 1978, it’s brewed with four malts and three varieties of hops, for a deliciously spicy, fruity and biscuity flavour.
Bitter with a faint flowery aroma and a moderately fruity, malty taste. The finish is long but pleasantly bitter with some sweetness and dryness.
A full-bodied, very distinctive beer with a bitter-sweet aftertaste.

At 4.5% abv, this Pale Ale has a good assertive pithy bitterness and a malty backbone. It is brewed with a selection of malts: Pale Ale, Rye and Cara. We use Citra, and a blend of other American hop varieties to create some great citrus flavours.
Gold coloured beer with a pleasant lemon, white grape and slightly bready nose. Taste reflects the nose with some astringency as the hops kick in.
Pale colour with predominantly fruity flavour and slight sweetness, leading to a pleasing, dry finish.
A mild brown bitter with a good balance of malt and hop character give a pleasing session drink. The finest pale ale malt (made from Maris Otter barley) is blended with torrified wheat, invert sugar and a small amount of roast barley, to ensure consistent colour.
A pale ale forged from the finest Maris Otter malt and a special blend of American hops. The nose is of fresh citrus and berry fruits with a smooth juicy malt character and deceptively moreish finish that belies its strength.
An acclaimed pale ale. It’s easy by name and easy drinking by nature while still retaining a full hoppy palate.
Pale brown with a faint malty and fruity aroma. Malt and fruit flavours dominate the taste with a balancing bitterness, making for an easy-drinking beer of deceptive strength.
This hopped-up ale demands your full attention. Our American style IPA is fittingly strong and brash, unleashing full-on flavour. Washington native hops Willamette and Simcoe take centre stage to deliver a symphony of spicy floral bitterness, supported by a sweet malty backbone. This beer refuses to go quietly.
