CAMRA Gold Medal Winner in the 2003 Champion Beer of Britain.

Jo Cox foundation The Great Get Together  (Guest)

4.2% £3.90
When an old mate of Brendan Cox, James, who runs social enterprise beer company The Good Beer Co. said he thought it would be good to have a beer to help people celebrate their Great Get Togethers, Brendan agreed enthusiastically. James then contacted Adnams Brewery and they contacted other breweries and something ground breaking happened. Golden in colour with flavours of Spice, orange peel and biscuit, this collaboration beer is brewed using Golden promise malted barley and UK grown hops; Fuggles, Goldings, Jester, Chinook and cascade, and fermented with a blend of house yeasts from Marstons, St Austell and J.W.Lees.

Adnams Freewheel (Guest)

3.6% £3.85
 A straw-coloured English summer ale with aromas of citrus and peaches, beautifully balanced by a touch of gooseberry on the finish. Brewed using pale ale malt and golden naked oats and a wonderful combination of English hops – Ernest, Jester and Endeavour.

Adnams Ghostship (Guest)

4.5%  £3.85
This beer has good assertive pithy bitterness with a malty backbone and a lemon and lime aroma. Ghost Ship is brewed with a selection of malts – Pale Ale, Rye Crystal and Cara. Adnams  use Citra, and a blend of other American hop varieties, to create some great citrus flavours.

George Gale Spring Sprinter (Guest)

4.0% £3.90
Spring Sprinter is refreshing to the palate and bursting with zesty hop flavours that pick out citrus and gooseberry. English malts provide the balance, with distinctive biscuity sweetness coming through - before the beer races to a short, sharp finish.

Lacons Pale Ale (Guest)

3.9%  £3.90
This modern expression is balanced with a golden hue. Crisp fruit greets the nose before a wave of melon and grapefruit. Bittersweet finish.
