Speight's Triple Hop Pilsner

With such a classic Czech lager style, the challenge is to achieve flavour balance between characterful malts and the strong hop content. Nelson Sauvin and New Zealand Saaz hops are added at boil’s end for a fresher fruitier aroma. The biscuity residual sweetness of Munich Malt provides the balance, leaving a clean finish.

Speight's Mid Ale

Brewed using Crystal, Caramalt and Chocolate malts, enough to give the beer a smooth caramelized malty flavor and aroma.
