A pale ale from Crafty Brewing Company
This pale-straw coloured beer offers satisfaction in every respect. The robust, international flavours of Chinook and Sorachi Ace hops combine with Maris Otter and the body-builder Cara-Pils malts to form a smooth and complex drinking experience. With refreshment levels going through the roof, this beer can be enjoyed at all times of the day (although before breakfast may be pushing it a little).
Hophead at 3.8% is one of our most popular beers and has a huge following across the south coast and I am sure even much further.
Hophead is a pale golden colour, cool crisp and refreshing with a slight hoppy bitterness. Many of our customers who drink it say that they seem to get drunk drinking this as opposed to drinking some of the stronger beers. That's because it's too 'moreish' and they always end up drinking more than they realise!
From time to time, in addition to Hophead, we will also be serving other Ales from Dark Star's excellent range.
Young’s Bitter (3.7%) a flavoursome thirst quenching ale from the Wells and Young’s brewing company.
Young's Bitter has a subtle hoppy taste, fruity aromas and a satisfying bitter finish, this is also one of our top sellers, and a truly great pint.
