A Ruby ale with a fruity aroma and a sustained, lingering bitterness with a subtle hit of lip-smacking fruitcake.
Featuring Gideon Mantell's Iguanadon, with a subtle red flag as a nod to St.George's Day (in April). Created by local Lewes artist, Malcolm Trollope-Davis.
A beer celebrating England’s Father of Palaeontology. In 1821, Lewes doctor and fossil collector Gideon Mantell’s understanding of fossilised Iguanodon teeth, discovered in a Sussex quarry, heralded the start of the classification of prehistoric reptiles.
Ruby in colour with a fruity aroma and a sustained, lingering bitterness.
This attractive ruby ale has so much going on in the nose, with beguiling notes of caramel and fruitcake coming to the fore. On the palate it’s deliciously sweet, full and rounded, which could become overpowering were it not for the foil of crisp hop bitterness finishing it off.
It’s an elegant, outrageously seductive match with mature cheddar, dancing with it in a way a good chutney does. It also pairs wonderfully with Viennese pastries.

Pour this premium ale and you’re face to face with a polished, burnished glint of ruby in the glass, alongside malt led aromatics of malt loaf and bara brith. The palate is currants, raisins, biscuity malt and malt loaf alongside a plump mouth feel and a dry finish that lingers in the company of an appetising bitterness.
This would be good with cheese, either Cheddar or hard smoked goat’s cheese, where it teases the sweetness out of the cheese, and matches with the acidity of pickled onions.
Also try with bangers and mash or steak and kidney pudding with buttered cabbage on the side.
