What's on:Salopian Harbinger
3.7% - Hadnall, Shropshire
Harbinger is bold, spicy and floral. It is deliciously intense without being overpowering. A white grape and lychee nose leads to a fresh, textured palate with a fruity finish.
Triple fff Pressed Rat and Warthog
3.8% - Alton, Hampshire
A complex mild, perhaps not in the traditional sense, but Triple fff like their beers
hoppy! Ruby coloured with a coffee/chocolate aroma, hints of dried fruits
and sour cherry leads to a soft yet full roast flavour, fruit and malt
vying with the rounded hoppy bittersweet finish. Not only for the mild
fanatics but the bitter lovers too. Purple Moose Cwrw Ysgawen / Elderflower Ale
4.0% - Portmadog, Gwynedd
Cwrw Ysgawen / Elderflower Ale is a refreshing pale ale brewed from Welsh
mountain water and natural ingredients. Cascade hops are used for aroma,
with the added indulgence of elderflowers, creating a superb floral
bouquet and a delectable sweet citrus finish.
Loddon NOTUS Ale

copper coloured American Pale Ale - a tropical hopfest, brewed with
Citra, Centennial, Sterling, Cascade and late hopped with even more
Citra. Intensely hoppy, yet still well balanced with a rich mouth feel.
