On the bar:

Dancing Duck Ay Up 3.9% An eminently drinkable pale session ale. Subtle malt and floral notes are matched splendidly with citrus hop, rounded off with a slightly dry finish. Derbyshire £2.40 (nearly all gone)

Dukeries Baronet 3.9% Hand crafted traditional Chestnut Bitter with good hops on the nose and bags of fruity flavours going on with a dry bitter finish. Nottinghamshire. £2.40

Adnams Jack Brand Mosaic 4.1% This beer was so popular last year we broke our rule and got it back (OK, Adnams gave us a big discount on the second cask, but still it was very popular). Brewed with Pale Ale malt, some Lager malt and a touch of light Cara. This single hop beer is made with Mosaic hops at each of the four stages of the brew process. This imparts bold hop characteristics, including peach, mango, lemon and pine flavours and aromas. With big fruity flavours and a Mosaic of aromas, it’s a fruity one-hop-wonder. Suffolk £2.70

Brentwood Lumberjack 5.2% Strong, slightly sweet, full bodied bitter is brewed using traditional English Fuggles and EKG hops to give a round, hoppy finish. Brenywood, Essex. LocAle. £3.00

Coming soon:

Big Smoke Pale Ale 4.5% Hazy, unfined, unfiltered, vegan pale ale from the Antelope brewpub. Surbiton. LocAle. Vegan. £2.70

Canterbury Foundry Stout Engenius 4.1% Stout with chocolate and coffee notes from the Foundry Brewpub, Canterbury. Kent. £2.70

Lcoppernobimited stocks: Tonbridge 5 litre/8.8 pint Mini Casks £19.50 each.

These 5 litre (8.8 pint) barrels of beer are incredibly popular. They sold out quickly at Chrismas. We have the same two Tonbridge beers in stock, these are Tonbridge Coppernob and Tonbridge Union Pale. Just £19.50. All are cask-conditioned beers which still contain a small amount of yeast – it is a proper live real ale, as you would get on the bar in the club. This means that the mini-casks have to be settled and have a shorter shelf-life than cans and bottles.

Coppernob 3.8%

A traditional Kentish Bitter. Fairly dry ale with a light maltiness and medium bitterness. A robust, fruity flavour is provided by Kent grown Golding and Challenger hops, plus some Fuggles from the Alsace.

Union Pale 4.7%

American hopped pale ale with a zesty citrus finish. Rich biscuity malt flavours balanced by citrus and tropical fruit aromas from four classic American hop varieties. SIBA South East Gold Medal winner Premium Bitters 2014.
