Titanic Plum Porter 4.9
This beer is dark strong and well rounded; the richness of such a rotund beer is brought to an even keel by the late addition of Goldings hops and natural plum flavouring. Take the opportunity and go for the low hanging fruit, this sumptuous beer really is a plum!

Deep amber ale with a touch of copper where lovely hop flavours dance on the lingering malty base.

The middle palate is clean with the Maris Otter malt character coming through with orange fruits making a re-appearance, merging with the final refreshing bite of bitterness.
Wimbledon Copper Leaf 4
The hops are English bittering (Fuggle/Golding). We have Equinox whole leaf for the flavour addition at the end of the boil and then Mosaic for a dry hop aroma. A burst of citrus, floral and tropical flavours from American and British hops overlay the complex malt characteristics of rye, caramel and spice. A refreshingly dry finish complements this American Red Ale.
