|Hops||Goldings, Styrian Bobek and Challenger|
|Contains||Barley & Wheat|
Classic amber pale ale with Lincolnshire pale and chocolate malts, and a blend of English hops (traditional Goldings and the more floral Challenger), then slowly mature it for a grainy, quaffable beer. Not your average English bitter.
Yella Belly Gold / Gold
|Hops||Chinook and Cascade|
A golden beer brewed with American Cascade and Chinook hops for a refreshing citrusy flavour and crisp, dry finish. Yella Belly is the nickname for us Lincolnshire folk, but how it came about is the source of much debate and mystique. Some say it’s on account of the waistcoats worn by the old Lincolnshire Regiment, while others swear it’s inspired by the stained overalls of the county’s mustard pickers or, indeed, the bellies of our distinctively marked marsh frogs. Whichever it is, Yella Belly is certainly a beer that deserves its place in local history.
