Beer Tasting Notes
Broughton hopopotamous 3.8%- Light golden ale using Columbus, Chinook & Cascade. Hopo is hoppy, but at 3.8% it is sessionable …simples !
Derventio Gold 4.2% - A golden bitter with subtle character and an outstanding hop finish using Citra and Bobek hops.
Geeves Clear Cut 4.4% -An extra pale ale with bags of American hops for a real citrus kick. Flavours of pine resin and citrus fruits create this mouth-watering pale ale.
Great Newsome Fine Fettle 4.1% -Everything is in fine fettle so let’s celebrate with this fine golden beer. An earthy slightly spicy bitterness from East Kent Goldings lead to well balanced peach and delicate citrus flavours with a sherbet sweet like aroma.
Great Oakley Wagtail 3.9% - A straw coloured bitter with a unique bitterness derived from New Zealand hops. Very drinkable and refreshing.
GNEB Claspers Citra Blonde 3.8% -A fruity and aromatic Citra hopped Pale Ale. Named after Harry Clasper a Tynesidel boat-builder and oarsman, who became a famous sportsman in Victorian times.
Naylors Blonde 4.3% - A premium Blonde beer, brewed using Optic malt, along with a touch of Wheat, has citrus and spice flavours with a floral finish provided by Hallertauer hops.
Osset Yorkshire Brunette 3.7 - An easy-drinking session bitter brewed from pale, wheat and roasted malts. Pale chestnut in colour and with moderate bitterness, aromas of spice and citrus fruit come from German and Slovenian hops.
Lancaster Lancaster Red 4.8% - Lancaster Red is premium strength, ruby red beer, fired by plentiful amounts of Golding’s and First Gold hops to give a wonderfully spicy but sweet fragrance. Using a blend of Maris Otter, Crystal and Dark Crystal malts, Red offers a robust malt-dominated body finished with a splendid bitter note. Red is an impact bitter designed to leave a lasting impression both visually and on the taste buds.
Outstanding Red 4.4% - A mid range copper red coloured ale, with a light bitterness and distinctive citrus hop finish in the nose and mouth feel.
Phipps Bison Brown 4.6% - Another classic Phipps ale from the 1950s, an imposing beast of a brown ale with the richness of a stout allied to the hoppyness of an ale. This blended ale was always the perfect marriage of Ratliffe’s Stout and IPA with a dash of Gold Star. The hoppiness of Phipps signature ales cuts through the smooth body of a creamy stout.
Reedley Hallows New Zealand Pale 4.5% - A New Zealand Pale Ale with hints of lemon, lime and a vanilla aftertaste.
Salopian Lemon Dream 4.5% - A shimmering golden ale that is brewed using organic lemons which adds beautifully subtle zesty aromas and a citrus filled fruity finish.
Cullercoats Plymouth Plum Mild 4.1% - A robust fruity mild, bursting with plums, Bramling Cross and East Kent Goldings hops, with a big malt base including dark crystal and malted oats for a creamy mouthfeel. Boasting a lovely dark reddish hue, it's perfect for a winter's evening.
Dudda’s Tun Bone Dry 5.5% - A clean, crisp and full-dry cider, made from Katy & Bramley apples - refreshing to the end!
Cornish Orchards Vintage Cider 7.2% - A strong dry, connoisseur's cider, created from apples selected for their soft tannins & traditional flavour. This classic still cider is matured over the winter months, to bestow vintage qualities.

Celtic Marches Lime and Mango 4% - A blend of smooth sophisticated mango note and finishing with a subtle zing.

Celtic Marches Slack Alice 6.5% - Celtic Marches medium cider is well rounded yet a little tart. Cider drier than Thundering Molly - still mellow with a very slight tart finish.
Lilley’sPear and Raspberry 4% - A fruity delight with a sharp bite of raspberry. This is a perry blended with raspberry juice to make a refreshing drink whether rain or shine.
Lilley’sBib Fire Dancer 4.5% - A traditional cloudy cider, with a rosy colour. This cider has been packed full of apples to really alow the taste to come through.
