You are drinking... #8

A slightly smaller brew than usual but there should be 791 pints of a fine English Pale Ale to be enjoyed with some even finer friends and family.

It's made of


Usual story — why challenge Mother Nature — drawn straight out of the chalk aquifer deep beneath our feet before the utility companies can get their paws on it. Quality tested and lovingly brewed.


Old school – ¾ of a Tod of fine dark Crystal malt and 8½ Slugs of Pale Ale malt.


100% 1st Gold hops from a merchant who has been trading since 1865. Selected to infuse slightly spicy notes and a hint of orange marmalade — a beer matched with your breakfast — probably best not.


English pale ale yeast — a hard working fast fermenter this one — nearly blew the lid off.

Other Stuff

Going to get a machine to help keg the beer — very excited — the back could do with a break.

It appears

Well, you can see for yourself.

It smells

Likewise; just use your nose.

It tastes

Up to you. Our tastebuds and preferences are all different anyway. It's meant to be a celebration of a well-balanced clean English Pale Ale.

If you don't like it don't waste good time/energy/ingredients — maybe just give it to someone who will appreciate it.


No need for compliments or criticism — we didn't record how we made it so we can't change anything anyway. Just remember to enjoy, socialise, and feel good — it's what the beer is there for!
