What they say: A rich, amber, smooth, well balanced beer with a terrific hoppy finish.
The latest to guest in our local watering hole was this offering. I’ve not come across this brewery before but it was a very tasty pint and I didn’t find it too hoppy either.
Would I swap it for the regular and excellent Harveys though? No, not quite but it’s certainly worth a go. 4.2% A.B.V.

What they say: A chestnut, tawny red Premium Ale. Brewed with Roasted Malts and English Fuggles Hops, to give a smoky, spicy hoppiness on the nose, leading to a molasses, nutty palate with a light fruity hop dryness.
Sadly, the only new ale that I got to try on the Isle of Wight, but it was at least enjoyable, although pretty potent at 4.8% A.B.V. Not one to slosh back all night – unless you like paracetamol!
