This is the list so far… (updated 20th June 2019)

Session IPA 3.9%
Let the golden colour, citrus aroma and delicious mango flavours transport you to a place when the sun never stops shining..

Beechwood 4.3%
Premium quality pale ale malt, with an extra proportion of crystal malt, and increased hops, gives this beer its renowned ‘nutty’ flavour and punch.

TBC… 4.2%
Designed for cask, brewed for cask and served cask only. Resolution is late hopped with three American hop varieties for maximum flavour. Light, refreshing and immensely drinkable.

Pale Four 4.6%
Hops, hops and more hops, although this is not just another one dimensional ‘lupin fest’. Cara, Munich and Rye Crystal malts provide a robust base for this punchy American West Coast IPA style beer.

Moongazing 4.2%
This red-amber hued ale has a well rounded late bitterness with grapefruit, mango and peach hop characteristics imparted by American Chinook and Citra. Rye crystal malt adds additional complexity to stimulate your senses.

Fanny Ebbs 3.9%
We’re not sure if Fanny Ebbs was a blonde but we know this beer is. It’s also amazingly crisp with very low bitterness and late citrus hop aroma from a combination of Saaz and Cascade varieties.

Hops from across the atlantic produce an assertive, dry, hoppy ale with a citrus nose combined with a notable sweetness..

Black Swan Mild 3.9%
Dark and smooth with hints of chocolate and coffee on the nose and a soft rounded malt finish.

Barrel Roll 4.2%
Tawny & Hoppy.

Blonde 4.3%
A light golden Summer beer, with a citrusy hop character. Serve it slightly cooler than usual for an ale, to enhance its refreshing quality.

Brewers Gold 4.0%
Supreme Champion Beer of Britain at the Great British Beer Festival 2005 and 2006, this multi-award-winning beer is pale, refreshing and extravagantly hoppy with gorgeous aromas of tropical fruits. Brewed with 100% extra-pale English barley malt and flavoured with heaps of choicest Brewers Gold hops, sourced with care from small-scale growers in the Hallertau.

Essex Boys Best 3.8%
Full bodied, traditional-style mid-brown “best” brewed from 100% English barley malt and copious English Challenger and Boadicea hops, which shine through. This is a great beer of its type and a classic session beer.

Hopspur 4.5%
Amber Ale with some citrus fruit aromas, chewy biscuity malt flavours, slight sticky sweetness and grapefruit piney hop flavours. Well balanced with hop flavours to the fore and an easy bitter finish. SIBA Gold Medal winner.

Snails Bank – Orchard Dry (5.2%)
Snails Bank make this a more challenging cider for the connoisseur. Again, Dabbinett apples feature highly in the blend along with other traditional bitter sweets such as Harry Masters and Ellis bitters. Not so dry as to be unpleasant, just slightly sweeter to ensure a crisp balanced cider where all the flavours really shine through.
