CitraCitra

Oakham Ales : Citra ABV 4.2% "amber ale"
Oakham Ales were founded back in 1993, they weren’t the first brewery to introduce light, hoppy beers to the UK but we were amongst the first to pioneer the use of hops from the USA and the New World. They use only Maris Otter malt – for 50 years the unchallenged “King of Malts”. From them comes their Citra Session IPA, light gold in colour, bursting with citrus and tropical hop flavours and sensationally refreshing. Champion Golden Beer of Great Britain 2019.

Gadds' Brewery : No.11 ABV 1.2% "Crisp, refereshing"
Gadds' Brewery began life in the back of a Ramsgate boozer full of louts and ne'er-do-wells, (their words), back in 2002. In 2006 they purchased a big shed and set-up again (properly this time), bigger, better and bolder than before, brewing fresh, tasty, local ale for fresh, tasty locals. From them comes No.11, their Anytime low alcohol Pale Ale. Crisp, refereshing pale ale with bags of delicious citrus hops - a really satisfying low alcohol beer you can drink from morning 'til night, any day you like.
