A pale hoppy American style beer brewed using American hop varieties and named after the ‘Good Ship Arbella’ which was the flag ship of a 18 vessel fleet that set sail from Great Yarmouth carrying puritan John Winthrop to Salem Massachusetts in the 1630’s. He was born in Edwardstone and was lord of the manor of Groton and later became the first governor of the State of Massachusetts. Interestingly the vessel had 10,000 gallons of beer on board.

Cask gravity at Colchester BF 2011. Gold thin white head. Sticky syrupy American hop aroma. Bit too syrupy and sweet on the hops I think. I had this next to the Harwich Town APA which was better. Not a huge difference in ABV but this is too sweet and syrupy whilst the Harwich Town was light and agile. Hops on this are ok but too sweet

Cask (Egham Beer Festival - Summer 2010) - Golden in colour. Grapefruit and passion fruit aroma with a hint of sulphur. Hoppy taste with grapefruit, malt and a slight sweetness.

Hand pulled cask at the Egham BF. Amber/gold with a white head and good lacework. A good crack at an APA but a little sweet at first. However, the US hops soon catch up with you and the overall impression led me to a second half. A very sound beer indeed.

Cask conditioned Gravity Dispense Peterborough BF. A copper coloured beer with no head. The aroma has good US hops but there’s an odd smoky note too. Taste is hoppy but again there’s that strange smoke which seems to have a floral quality. A real hint of parma violets add an odd feel to what is a good beer in parts, but has a strange undertone to it.

Cask, Gravity at Banbury Beer Festival, Oxon, 07-05-09 Recommended to me by my dad on the Thursday evening, I had it a couple more times over the weekend. Pours light amber with the merest of haze. Good lemon peel and rind in the mouth and an immediate thrusting bitterness that really coats the tongue in a furry rasping numbness. This is very hoppy little number that finishes really quite dry, really likeable stuff. A7 A4 F8 P4 Ov15 3.8

Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Fest ’09. Gold with white head. You get straight in to the hop rush with this beer, lots of dry tangy, grapefruit and lemon notes right in to your face. The body is decent enough, there are well brewed out malts giving a dry biscuity background, but the hops are the thing. A beautifully set up beer that I hope to come across again.
