Extra Special Mild, we like our milds very special and very mild and maybe a little wild. Classic Yorkshire beer, all Brit ingredients, very smooth and mouth filling, nice malt down the middle, but clean and somewhat herbal finish. Lovely spot-on pint served through a sparkler. ABV 4.7%
Think of Vermont as a beer style. This Double IPA uses the Vermont (Conan) yeast, U.K. malts and four American and one U.K. hop variety, massively. Tons of light fruits, apple and peach drops, a bit zesty in the finish. ABV 7.6%
Don’t IPA me I’ll IPA you! This is a sour, a Belgian and a bit Yank, and a little dank. Lorries full of hops in this one, Citra and Simcoe, pucker up mate. ABV 7.1%
What makes this beer Jammy is the all English malt bill, Maris Otter for the base and a dash of Carastan for toastyness. Add an abundance of Centennial hops for a citrusy edge and we’re there. At 5% ABV you might just find yourself under the affluence on incahol.
Jetzt trinken wir wirklicht bier. (we’re really drinking beer now). Pale, clean, and bright as can be, toasty bread,malt forward with low bitterness but enough alcohol to inspire. 5%
Word has it, Porter is the original ale. The recipe is an agglomeration of historical London grist bills with English brown malt for a burnt cookie chocolate note, with the English ale yeast yielding a stone fruit, figgy flavor. Smooth, rich, but sessionable finish. Recommended for general family use where a Pale Ale is not required. ABV 6.1%
This is an Old Scrumpy style cider with apples from the fine orchards of the Pacific northwest. Nicely blended varieties, allowed to “scrump” before milling and pressing, then fermented out to a fine tannic dryness. “Drink up ye Zider” ABV 7.1 %
What you’re looking at is a sexy little number that would rank right up there with the best of the English Pale Ales. Crisp and creamy. Simple, elegant. Candied pears, spice drops, hay and a bit of honeyed biscuits, clean, dry with a mouth-filling stone fruit notes. Not exceedingly bitter but loads of flavor. ABV 6%
This deep crimson colored Scottish ale has a dark caramel note only possible with a traditional Scottish 2 hour boil. A moderate hop schedule reveals a complex flavor profile reminiscent of dark fruit and toast. Succulent finish.
