Also new on the bar:

Musket Fife and Drum 3.8% A Golden Ale which produces tantalising tastes and aromas of spice, honey, marmalade, floral and the merest hint of wild blackcurrant growing in the hedgerows of Kent. An ale which is akin to taking a refreshing stroll in the garden of England. LocAle. Linton. £2.70

Nearly gone:

Tonbridge Traditional 3.6%  Easy drinking and refreshing ale with a light fruity taste and aroma from traditional Kent grown Golding and Challenger hops. LocAle. £2.70

Pig and Porter Summer Stout 4.2% Something a little different. Summer Stout is black and roasty as you’d expect but with a clean tasting yeast and some beautiful resinous American hops that we think work particularly well in a dark beer. LocAle. Tunbridge Wells. £2.70

Coming on (probably tonight):

Musket Muzzleloader 4.5% Our Kentish Ale envokes the faint spicy aroma of well-seasoned, smoked cedar logs and orange drifts from this full-bodied bitter. LocAle. Linton. £2.70.

Salopian Hop Twister 4.5% The palate is fresh, piercing and focused, with soft malt overtones and pronounced citrus flavours. A strong focus of taut, lemony, grapefruit on the finish which is balanced by a dry bitterness. Awards: SIBA National Champion Premium Beer Silver 2015, Bronze Golden Beer Category Champion Beer of Britain 2014, West Mids CAMRA Golden Beer of the Year 2013. Silver Best Bitter Category CAMRA Champion Beer of Britain 2012. Shropshire. £2.70.

Coming soon:

Musket Flintlock 4.2% A stunning best bitter which evokes a taste of an old English woodland, with shafts of dappled sunlight striking through green cedar trees. Flintlock will ignite your tastebuds with its spicy orange undertones and just a hint of marmalade. LocAle. Linton. £2.70

Pig and Porter Elders and Betters 3.5% A crisp, refreshing golden pale ale with a lemony flavour and a subtle hint of elderflower towards the finish. LocAle. Tunbridge Wells. £2.70
