Light, refreshing English bitter

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.

Smooth sailing

Seafarers is brewed with a blend of finest-quality English malt, famous Gales yeast and the aptly named Admiral hop. At 3.6% ABV, it’s a superb, sessionable drop - perfect for a pint or two with your shipmates.

Brewer's Notes

Faintly fruity on the nose, this light amber beer sails a steady course through well-developed malt character towards a satisfying, hoppy finish. The Gales yeast brings out soft fruit flavours, while the hops impart a zesty, spicy quality to the brew.
