Real Ale List

Here is the full list of our permanent and guest ales at the Churchill Tavern
Ale Name Ale Description
Abbot Ale – 5.0% (Greene King) A full bodied distinctive beer with a bittersweet aftertaste
American Pale Ale – 4.7% (Darkstar) Brewed with American hops and yeast. The low colour Maris Otter malt provides a perfect light colour and dryness to compliment the crisp taste and full aroma of the hops
 East India Pale Ale – 4.1% (Whitstable)  Pale ales exported to India in the 19th century were highly hopped and this refreshing pale ale is no different
 Festiv’ale – 3.8% (Gadd’s)  Elaborate, tropical fruit hop notes dominate the nose whilst pale ale malts structure a decent body to compliment a measured bitterness. Drink in the sun
 Fletcher’s Ale – 4.8% (Milestone Brewery)  Full bodied
 English Ale – 4.1% (Salisbury)  Brewed deep in the heart of Salisbury’s ancient Wylye Valley, with local malt and water for a beautifully rounded, rewarding flavour
 No 5 – 4.4% (Gadd’s)  A traditional Kentish beer with an aroma of toffee malt and fresh green hops. A full bodied lingering finish
 No 7 – 3.8% (Gadd’s)  A simple beer brewed with Golding’s hops for a little bitterness, Fuggles hops for flavour and some crystal malt for colour and body
 Kentish Reserve – 5.0% (Whitstable)  A copper ale with warm plum pudding flavours and a ruby port finish. Strong yet refreshing.
Hophead – 3.8% (Darkstar) An extremely clean drinking pale gold coloured ale with a strong floral aroma from the Cascade hops. Full bodied despite its very quaffable strength and dryness
I.P.A. – 3.6% (Greene King) A hoppy bitter with a sweet aftertaste. Can be poured ‘Southern’ or ‘Northern’
Pearl of Kent – 4.5% (Whitstable) A light coloured well-rounded premium beer with tropical fruit flavours
Seasider – 4.3% (Gadd’s) A mellow easy drinking ale brewed with a little crystal malt and a lot of Goldings hops. A very decent malty body with a balancing hop flavour
She Sells Seashells – 4.7% (Gadd’s) Clean fresh bitterness and a gorgeous zesty hop flavour. A perfect light summer ale

No 3 – 5.0% (Gadd’s) The true taste of East Kent, this pale ale is brewed with goldings hops from Humphrey’s farm just down the road. It’s fresh, hoppy and clean
Beacon’s Gold – 4.2% (Brecon Brewing) Splendid golden ale with a soft bitterness
Single Hop Sauvin – 5.0% (Canterbury Ales) A pale, fruity, hoppy beer
Skrimshander – 4.5% (Hopdaemon) An aromatic copper-coloured pale ale brewed from the finest malted barley and Kentish hops
Posh Pooch – 4.2% (Ascot Ales) A light copper colour with a sweet malt taste and toffee notes. This is perfectly balanced with a mix of Perle and Cascade hops providing a sharp bitterness with a strong citrus and tropical fruit aroma
Old Golden Hen – 4.1% (Morland) Brewed using the finest malts and the rare Galaxy hop to give the light golden colour, subtle tropical fruit notes and a deliciously smooth finish
Doombar – 4.0% (Sharp’s) Orange amber ale. Notes of dried fruit, lightly roasted malt and a subtle yet assertive bitterness. The bitterness remains into the finish with dry fruity notes
Bombardier – 4.1% (Well’s) A burnished copper colour, it has a rich aroma of peppery hops and raisins, while the palate is dominated by more dark fruit, juicy malt and tangy hop
TSB – 4.4% (Oakleaf) A very pale hoppy ale, with a slight malty taste. The use of ‘Hallertauer Aroma Hops’ gives a floral and vanilla taste and aroma
Quercus Folium – 4.0% (Oakleaf) The English translation from Latin is ‘Oak Leaf’. This is a mid brown session ale with a complex malt sweetness that leads to a long hoppy finish. It’s distinctive taste shares the perfection of classical times
