Real Ales - Now available on tap

Iron Duke

Iron Duke IPA

Irving & Co Brewers from Portsmouth

5.3%

It’s a beer with a bit of Welly!

Tasting Notes

Iron Duke is a luscious golden modern style IPA.
The nose is dominated by the aromas of sherbet and lemon from the Liberty and Columbus hops added late in the hopback. The palate is soft fruits and pineapple balanced with a subtle toffee sweetness, finishing with a pleasant citrus bitterness.

Type 42

Type 42 Best Bitter

Irving & Co Brewers from Portsmouth

4.2%

Destroy a few pints the next time you visit The Seal, its a fast mover, blink and its gone!

Tasting Notes

Type 42 is a robust best bitter with a deep ruby red hue obtained from the use of a generous addition of crystal malt. This beer balances sweet hedgerow berry notes with a long roasted malt finish and a deep bitterness from the English Pilgrim hops used in the copper and the hopback.

Hophead

Dark Star in West Sussex

3.8%

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.

Tasting Notes

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

Wells & Young's

3.7%

Young’s Bitter (3.7%) a flavoursome thirst quenching ale from the Wells and Young’s brewing company.

Tasting Notes

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.
