Spitfire was first brewed in 1990 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Battle of Britain and raise funds for RAF veterans. The name comes from the iconic planes defending the British islands, and while the label of the bottle has seen many versions over time, the shape of the aircraft is a constant element. The beer was meant to be a one-off brew, but its success was such that not only it became the brewery’s flagship, it also gained a protected status as a Kentish Ale. Kentish ales are dark amber-colored and boast hoppy and toffee aromas. Their tastes are usually fruity and rather bitter. Spitfire ticks off all these boxes and adds to that a distinctive roasted maltiness and touches of caramel. The hops used are 100% Kentish hops (Challenger, Target, First Gold, East Kent Goldings) and provide a floral and spicy aroma. Spitfire has a smooth mouthfeel and medium body and can be enjoyed at any occasion.
