Idle Dove

Named after the River Dove, famous for its trout. And the River Idle, which isn’t. This full-bodied pale ale is brewed with Victory malts for a malty, biscuit taste. Full bodied but balanced, the hops give it a slight spicy zing. No trace of trout though.

This guest ale is available in February

  • Our head of brewing, Emma Gilleland met father and son farming team Clive & Richard back in 2014 at the English Hops AGM. Since then we've invested in building the Marston's Hop Garden at their farm in Kent and have been experimenting with new hop varieties. We should get our first crop next year. Watch this space.
