DOOMBAR - SHARPS
Brown & Complex
The aroma of Doom Bar combines an accomplished balance of spicy resinous hop, inviting sweet malt and delicate roasted notes. The mouth feel is a perfectly balanced and complex blend of succulent dried fruit, lightly roasted malty notes and a subtle yet assertive bitterness. The bitterness remains into the finish with dry fruity notes which implore the drinker to go back for more
THE STORY BEHIND THE NAME
Where the river Camel meets the Atlantic Ocean on Cornwall's rugged north coast, a sand bank, centuries old, known as the Doom Bar protects and calms this beautiful estuary. Sailors respect the Doom Bar knowing it to be unforgiving if met with haste or arrogance.
Doom Bar the beer embodies many characteristics which make it worthy to carry the name of this natural wonder. It's distinctive aroma and balanced flavour set it apart from other beers taking unsuspecting first time drinkers by surprise with its moreish appeal.
Hopback Golden Best
Golden & Hoppy
GFB our Golden, with the sort of light clean tasty quality which makes an ideal session ale. Tasted to destruction by our brewers, GFB our Golden Best has a hoppy aroma and is packed full of the very best East Kent Goldings, leading to a good dry finish.
Golden & Bitter
A powerfully hopped IPA. We have taken the advice, and some of the hops, from our friends at Shipyard brewery in the USA and added our famous Ringwood Yeast. The result is a rich, full flavoured, golden beer. Best enjoyed with spicy curry
