#beer of the day 531, Hop Studio Citra 7.4%. This is a rich and hazy IPA from York packed with hops yet surprisingly smooth and with a definite sweet apricot notes. The finish is slightly dry and malty. Overall a well balanced IPA and not as strong tasting as the AVB might suggest.

This great IPA is made by the great guys at Oakham. This has a citrus background with a sweet malty base. A very refreshing drink for a very hot day. Colour is a golden blonde.
#beer of the day 529. Earls / Mikkller, The Earl of Denmark, 7.0%. So how could we not make this one the beer of the day as soon as possible! We made this beer with Mikkeller a few weeks ago and now it is ready to drink. It’s on the Mikkeller bar in Denmark its on here and it’s on at our sister bar The Kings Arms. You won’t be able to drink this anywhere else! So what is it? It’s a massive IPA it’s got bags of hops thrown in over a base of malts that gives this beer a real sense of balance. This balance means that even at 7% you want to drink more and more of this beer. It has layers of taste that prevent it from getting old. We are really proud of this one, it won’t stick around for long either if you want it, come and get it!
#beer of the day 528. Camden, gentlemans wit, 4.3%. A beer for the summer time. It’s light and refreshing with all the classic wit beer vibes going on. It smells so fresh with strong hints of banana then the taste is dominated by the yeast esters the tinge the tongue and make this beer both interesting and very accessible. As usual a great beer from the North London brewing super heroes under the train tracks.
#beer of the day 527. Roosters, Yankee, 4.3%. A debut on keg for this beer. It works so well you have to ask the question ‘why did they wait so long’. The added carbonation lets he hops fly over the tounge to hit the back of the palate and you are left with the sweet malts developing as the beer warms up in your mouth. It smells of papaya fruit and freshly cut grass. So refreshing and perfect for the on coming summer. Have it with our pan fried squid for full impact on the taste buds.
#Beer of the day 526, Thornbridge Reverend and the Makers american brown ale 5%. The beer pours a dark mahogany with a red hue, It is packed full of sweet tasting malts but is still relatively sharp on the palate. clean nutty notes are followed by smooth honey flavours and a nice bitterness at the end. A well balanced beer rich and with just the right amount of character.
#beer of the day 525. Harbour Farmhouse IPA 7.2%
This harbour farmhouse IPA is a perfect example of a great IPA. Brewed with sweet orange, lime and lemon peel along with coriander seeds. It has also been fermented with saison yeast to create a dry yet refreshing finish. One of our finest on tap.
#beer of the day 524 Magic rock villainous Vienna IPA 6.5%. A delicious malty first taste from the vienna malts followed closely by a huge hit of hoppy dry goodness. Packed with citrus and orange peel favours. This is a beer with a lot of body and a lasting finish. Although its strong it is still dangerously thirst quenching. Rich in colour rich in taste and very nicely balanced.
#beer of the day 523. Summerwine, maelstrom, 9.0%. A big bombing double IPA. This beer has a huge sweet malt base that grounds the beer and stops the hops completely destroying your taste buds for the whole night. The hops themselves are very forward with grassy and citrus notes. This is a good beer that manages to maintain balance with its big flavours.
#beer of the day 523. Arbor, G-Bomb, 4.7%. This is a fine golden ale that is closer to a pale than a traditional golden style. It has hops, hops and then some more hops just to finish. The nose is sweet with a tropical edge. The malt is really just there as a means to carry the hops over. It is a fun beer with a good punch.
#beer of the day 522. Ilkley, rombald, 5.0%. A full bodied amber ale from up north. It is very full on with the upfront body with rich malty tastes. However this beer isn’t only about malts. They have given it a needed punch with a load of hops giving it a really bitter finish that lingers on well after the malt profile has decreased.
#Beer of the day 521 Highland Fastnet 4.0%.
All the way from Orkney this is a smooth slightly sweet American style Pale ale. Perfectly clear and very crisp with medium body and good lacing. There are definite caramel notes and an almost sharp bitter finish, which creates a nice balance. The beer has a good amount of carbonation to it and suits being served cold. Over all a clean and refreshing tipple.
#beer of the day 520. Rogue Beard Beer 5.6%.
This Belgian style ale is another perfect reason why Rogue is one of the best breweries. The typical Belgian style ale is usually of a high abv but Rogue have kept it to a moderate level of 5.6% which makes not only a great drink but a great tasting one too. This is also believed to have yeast that comes from the Brewmasters beard into which it gives this beer it’s taste.
#beer of the day 519. Fourpure, pale ale, 5.0%. This is their attempt at a Californian style pale ale. They do it really well. Equal parts dry and sweet it’s a really well balanced beer. The smell very hoppy with remnants of cut grass. The taste is instantly sweet but the hops cut trough to create a dry finish and an overall dry beer. Excellent beer.
