Starboard! was the first attempt at a light summery beer. It was originally called “Starboard! Regatta Ale” after the sailing event held in the village every late July/early August and was brewed specifically for that period. However, it became quite popular and it was re-branded as “Starboard!” and sold throughout the year.
The use of just Maris Otter Pale Malt and Torrified Wheat make this an extremely light-coloured beer. Styrian Goldings hops provide a distinctive grapefruit/citrus flavour to the finish.
