Faint malt are dominated by a strong citrusy hop nose. Some biscuit malt in the taste but mostly the citrus hop bitterness which continues through to a nice long hoppy finish.
A strong golden beer with a fresh hop character. This ale has a smooth taste with a balanced sweetness throughout. Devonshire through and through!

A dark stout with a delicious blend of dark malts to provide a complexity in character which draws you in for another sip. Named after the brewer’s dog, who’s also very dark and complex!

An amber glow with an initial malt aroma. The complex balance of malt and English hops give lingering tastes of nuts, fruit and a dry hoppy bitterness.

Pale amber with a subtle floral aroma, Front Row scores with a malty, biscuity character reminiscent of London Pride. Beautifully balanced by flowery hops, the beer hints at fruity, grassy flavours before heading over the posts with a fresh, satisfying finish.
