Light in colour, with prominent floral and ginger notes that mellow into a gentle sweet bitterness.
The perfect Valentine celebration beer.
Featuring Rodin's famed Kiss statue, with Rodin painting studiously in the background. Created by local Lewes artist, Malcolm Trollope-Davis.
Kiss celebrates ‘the returned kiss’: In 2000 Rodin’s Kiss was returned to Lewes for an exhibition having been resident in the Town Hall but rejected by the townsfolk some eighty years previously.
A Valentine beer brewed with malted barley, pinhead oats and a marriage of English and Continental hops.
Golden ales go well with chicken because neither overwhelm the flavour of the other. With Kiss it has a spicy and fruity character that complements the satay and falafel very well. That spiciness has a distinct ginger flavour which also complements the ginger sponge pudding.
