Adnams Gunhill

Adnams Gunhill pump clipTasting notes and ingredients

At 4.0% abv, this is a traditional dark ruby beer described as across between a dark mild and a brown ale. We use a blend of 4 different malts to give a rich dark beer that belies its low ABV. The toffee, chocolate and spicy flavours come from the Chocolate, Crystal and Aromatic malted barleys and the sweetness left from the Tipple malted barley is balanced by the bitterness from the Boadicea hops.

What’s the story?

First brewed in 2008, this beer was chosen to celebrate one of Southwold's famous landmarks - the six cannons that face out to sea. It is said these 18-pounder cannons were given to the town in 1746 by the Royal Armouries as a protection to shipping against raids. See them for yourself when you next visit us. The cannons are still fired (which is quite a spectacle) for special occasions in Southwold. Gunhill was retired in cask and keg in May 2016
