August will see us brew our first ever fruit beer – Seville. The beer is created using a complex recipe using malted wheat in addition to Maris Otter barley malt and the new hop, El Dorado. The beer will give you a hint of Spanish bitter oranges.

On tap at Craft Beer. Clear amber beer, good white head. Light semi dry palate. Nice rich marmalade seville orange. Fruity and tangy with a pithy peel bitterness. Finishes dry with a little fresher orange coming to the fore. Finishes dry. A bit different from you run of the mill insipid English fruit beers. Great depth of flavour here, rich. Good stuff!
