Dorset Piddle Brewery (Piddlehinton, Dorchester)



Piddle (4.1%): Full bodied and amber, Piddle is sweet and malty with a fruity nose leading to a resinous hoppy flavour with a twist of citrus fruit, giving way to a dry bitter finish!

Silent Slasher (5.1%): Blonde, lager style beer crafted with the finest extra pale malt and wheat. Deceivingly light, with hops chosen for their floral aroma and flavour. At 5.1% Silent Slasher is sweet with a refreshing, dry bitter finish!
