Autumn Ale

November/December 1999. This rich red-brown ale has an aromatic initial note from the fine American hops which contrasts with the malty finish. More warming than its strength implies. ABV 4.2%

Bears On Tour

Hopping Mad

March 2000. A pale golden ale delicately flavoured with the finest hops. The beer has a delightful aromatic taste and bouquet. Blackcurrant, lemon, orange, vanilla and a host of other aromatic flavours combine to produce a quaffable spring ale. It proved so popular, it's now part of our regular range. ABV 4.2%

April Fools' Ale

April 2000. A premium mid brown hoppy bitter brewed to mark April Fools' Day. A fine balance of hop flavour and bitterness combine with a toffee hint from the crystal malt. The initial malt flavour is followed by bitterness before the full hop flavour explodes across the tongue. One to savour. ABV 4.4%
