Brewed with pale ale malt and dark crystal malt to give a rich base onto which we paint the hops. Using an unusual combination of Pilgrim, Brewers Gold and Celia.
This gives a smooth bitterness and a hint of forest fruits.
An enjoyable session beer which leaves the drinker wanting more.
HURRICANE - 4.2%
Our version of a new wave American IPA.
A clean crisp blonde ale brewed with pale Marris Otter and Munich malts which give a sweet base. American hops Crystal and dry hopped Cascade infuse the beer with taste and wonderful aroma of summer fruits and pink grapefruit which liger on the taste buds.
A refreshing aromatic ale.
Based on a traditional west country "home brewed" style.
A dark mild enriched with light and dark crystal which together with a sprinkle of chocolate malt gives the beer a rich full bodied flavour.

This is a mild with plenty to interest the drinker.
GALE - 4.5%
Brewed as a seasonal autumn ale. We have used a combination of medium, dark and Munich malts to give a rich malty flavour.
