Black Sheep Brewery, Original Bitter3.8%

Brewed with whole flower English hops, Best Bitter packs a genuine spiky bitterness with big character. Challenger, Goldings and Fuggle hops blend to create a beautiful aroma and flavour with kicks of grassy freshness and a big peppery punch. The Maris Otter malt offers a light sweetness that balances against those big bitter characters.

York Brewery, Snowflake, 3.7%

The 3.7% ABV golden ale combines two American hops from the Pacific North West, offering a citrus punch with a crisp, clean taste. Its complex, malty taste is driven by a mix of pale, crystal and pale chocolate malts, with a hint of citrus and mixed peel.


Oakham, Citra, 4.2%

Light gold in colour, bursting with citrus and tropical hop flavours and sensationally refreshing.
