The five Gyle 59 Beers:
Freedom Hiker 3.7%
Created in honour of the Tolpuddle Pilgrimage, this beer is based on a recipe that was brewed during the period when the Tolpuddle Martyrs were deported to Australia. In addition to the UK hops and malt that form the traditional body of this beer Gyle 59 added an extra aroma hop grown in Australia. The beer is golden brown with a rich amber malt flavour combining with New World hops to put a modern twist on an old recipe. Brewed to a lower strength than the original recipe, this beer is a refreshing drink for a weary pilgrim. £2.40
This is a Saison. It has its roots in a long tradition of Belgian farmhouse ales. The mixture of Pale and Vienna malts combine with three different English and German hops to perfectly complement the earthy, peppery and spicy yeast flavours. £2.70
Green Hop Wheat 4.8%
This Green Hop beer has the addition of malted wheat to bring an unusual additional dimension to the use of green hops. The beer is refreshing with hints of fruity bubblegum. Bitter and satisfying. £2.70
Dark and Bitter 5.8%
This is a Black IPA. Using a combination of darker roasted malts and plentiful hop additions this beer is both satisfying and refreshing at the same time. £3.00
The Favourite 6.6%
A robust and fruity porter. Heavily hopped with Bramling Cross and Brewers Gold, it has a flavour and aroma which reminds you of dark fruits such as black cherries and blackcurrants. The rich mix of chocolate, black and crystal malts ensure that the taste of the hops are enhanced by a contrasting dark chocolate and roasted malt flavour. £3.00
The sixth beer is a fined LocAle from Kent Brewery
Kent Pale 4.0%
A rich blend of hops with Maris Otter Pale Malt. A full flavoured, aromatic and easy drinking Pale Ale
