London Pride is a smooth and astonishingly complex beer, which has a distinctive malty base complemented by a rich balance of well developed hop flavors from the target, challenger and northdown varieties in the brew. At 4.1% a.b.v in cask (4.7% a.b.v in bottles) London Pride is an ideal session-strength premium ale. Its flavor has been likened by Stephen Cox, beer writer and former campaigns director at CAMRA, to 'the sensation of angels dancing on the tongue...'!
This clean bitter can be used as a digestif or with game style meats like boar, veal or even a hearty steak. With its caramel notes this strong ale pairs with chocolates and sharp cheeses, as well as traditional bar foods.
Often called "mild" if it is on draft, brown ale is a walnut-colored specialty of the North of England. A festive-occasion beer, brown ale is one of the oldest English brewing styles, mentioned in literature in the 16th century. Beers brewed at the old brewery have a round, nutty flavor because of the Yorkshire square system of fermentation. Walnut-like color and palate of hazelnuts. Wonderful balance of roasted crystal malt and aromatic hops. Long clean finish.

Combining a traditional ale recipe with the flavor of 'Fair trade' bananas creates an intriguing and flavorsome pint. It has been described by renowned International beer writer, Michael Jackson, as "...fruity roughness of winter barley and toffeeish sweetness of crystal malt...hugely tempting aroma of bananas; creamy head; firm, silky body."
Wells Banana Bread Beer pairs well with creamy desserts and sweet breads.
