This Pale Ale takes its name from the castle built by King John in 1207, which is located less than a mile from the original Brewery, and from where he rode out to Runnymede to sign the Magna Carta. The beer itself is deep amber in colour with a blend of pale ale and crystal malt. The bitterness and fruity aroma are developed from a combination of hops.
Bengal Tiger’ is an English Style India Pale Ale. Brewed with a nod to the original English style IPA with 2 types of malted barley whilst East Kent Golding hops provides the Bitterness, Goldings for aroma and dry-hopped for good measure.
A rich golden ale with an intensely hoppy aroma. American Mosaic hops gives this beer a huge aroma of tropical fruits, citrus fruits and red berry. The bitterness relatively low despite the huge dose of late hops, so Gold retains its drinkability and balance.

Based on a classic IPA recipe which uses Imperial Malt along with Chinook, Simcoe and Pacific Jade hops.

The resultant beer is a pale, smooth, full IPA with a distinct bitterness and with a hop aroma that is enhanced by a touch of the exotic!
A high proportion of crystal malt in Old Speckled Hen provides the key toffee/caramel flavour. The yeast used to ferment the beer provides the other key character – estery or banana/pear drop.
