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
