The Nags Head Beers

Almasty - Idaho 7 x Sabro - Pale - 4% - £4.20
A stunning Pale Ale in the true New England Style, packed with Wheat and Oats for a soft and juicy mouthfeel, with balance brought from the Idaho 7 and Sabron hops bringing stone fruits and citrus along with a touch of pine and a hint of coconut to deliver a super modern session pale ale that is big on body and flavour

Elusive - Monuments of Mars - Pale - 6% - £4.40
Strawberry and Kiwi IPA in collaboration with Boutilliers.

Hopcraft - NZ Hopped Super Pale - Pale - 4.2% - £4.00
Another new brew, and it's exactly what it says on the pump-clip... It's a 'super pale' ale made exclusively with New Zealand hops. We've gone with all Super Pale malt in this brew to keep the colour way down... apart from a couple of small additions for mouthfeel and head retention... and then we've gone with a mix of three NZ hops. Dr Rudi went in the boil and then it was dry-hopped with plenty of Waimea and Kohatu for a tropical fruit finish, balanced with a lingering citrus bitterness. So there you have it, it's 'super pale' and full of NZ hops... but I guess the name gave that way?! Malt: Super Pale Planet malt, Wheat Malt, Dextrin Hops: Dr Rudi, Waimea & Kohatu

Pixie Spring - Deliverance APA - Pale - 4.5% - £4.00
American Pale Ale

Redemption - Trinity - Pale - 3% - £4.00
An award-winning Light Ale brewed with three malts and three hops. Generous late hopping provides Seville orange aromas and the initial malt sweetness is dominated by citrus flavours which explode on the palate. Brewed with plenty of malt to provide decent body, so it has some backbone for a low ABV beer. There’s also a pronounced bitterness throughout.

Siren Craft Brew - Suspended In Summer - Pale - 4% - £4.00
Quite literally summer in a glass. The hop line-up of Ekuanot, Cascade and Columbus give a fresh and vibrant aroma of citrus, grapefruit and fresh hops. For taste expect notes of grapefruit and papaya with floral notes. A brew that will keep you refreshed on the hottest of summer days, or put some sunshine in your life during the normal British rain.

Titanic - Nine Dogs - Pale - 4.9% - £4.00
The first time for us using Galaxy hops, this beers name pays homage to the nine dogs that were on board the Titanic. This pale beer is hoppy and crisp with light tones of passion fruit.

Urban Island - Big City, Small Island - Pale - 5.2% - £4.00
A refreshing hazy smooth tropical pale which breaches the flavour threshold resulting in a fruity mouthfill bursting with citrus fruits of lemon, lime and melon and after hints of coconut.

Stonehenge - PIGSWILL - Brown - 4% - £3.80
Brewed at OG 1040 and ABV 4.0%. A full bodied beer, not so bitter, but rich in hop aroma which gives the beer a delightful aftertaste. The warm amber colour is very appealing to the eye.

Vale - Black Swan - Mild - 3.9% - £3.80
Dark and smooth with an impressive full roast flavour that belies its strength.

Indigenous - Silly Moo - Stout - 4.2% - £4.00
A smooth milk stout

Mad Squirrel - Vin Biersel - Fruit - 4.9% - £4.00
A blonde beer brewed with white grape juice and fermented with a blend of wine and ale yeasts: This beer catches you unaware like the sensitive moments in a film about fast cars. Soft, dry and fruity, it's best drunk whilst wearing a tight tank top, with a tear in your eye.
