A rich red ale for spring time

Live the high life with Gales Redwood

Hampshire roots

Gales’ Hampshire heartland is home to some of Britain’s most famous Redwood trees, and they provide the natural inspiration for this spring seasonal. Some of the ingredients, though, come from further afield - with Australian hops contributing fruity flavours and even a spicy kick. There’s bite here as well as bark…

Brewer's Notes

Brewed with pale ale and Imperial malts, Gales Redwood is a forest of biscuity, malty flavour - while sweeter bready notes and deep red colour come from the addition of rye crystal. Pride of Ringwood and Galaxy hops bring lighter flavours like passion fruit and citrus to the palate, before that gently spiced finish.

Raise a glass

Redwood is the only beer in our range brewed with The Pride of Ringwood hop - a variety grown in Melbourne Australia, but bred from the British hop, Pride of Kent.

Something similar

All hail Black Cab

Brewed with the knowledge of London’s oldest family brewer, Fuller’s Black Cab is a rich, dark stout that transports you to a time gone by. London was famous for stouts in the 19th century - and we’re on a journey to make that the case again.

Something completely different

Get on board with Seafarers Ale

Launched in support of the UK’s leading maritime charity, Gales Seafarers made its maiden voyage in 2005. A crisp, light and quenching amber ale, it continues to be the easiest, most refreshing charity work you’ll ever do.
