Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.
Our amber ale is traditionally hand brewed with a blend of lager and Maris Otter malts hopped with both UK and American varieties to give a refreshing citrus taste.

prawlie (1468) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2016
Bottle. Clear amber with a fluffy little head. Faint fruity and slightly medicinal aroma. Dry, spicy, smoked and very dry. This was a bit too phenolic for my liking, too harsh.

Scopey (11762) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2016
Cask at Marine Hotel. It pours clear amber with a small white head. The aroma is brown bread, cereal, grainy, leather and toffee. The taste is bitter, lemon peel, pithy citrus, brown bread, leather and a touch of astringency with a drying finish. Light - medium body and soft carbonation. Pretty basic bitter action.
