We're passionate about our lager brewing history, but we love brewing ales too. As our brewery grew, in 2013 we began experimenting with cask ales. Our successful “Smooth Hoperator”, is a smooth pale ale and was quickly followed by the “LodeStar Festival Ale”, brewed to promote Lodestar Music Festival near Cambridge, with which Calvors is proud to be associated. New for 2017 is a Session IPA and American Red. Our first brews with bold US hops. Our ales are available in 9 Gallon casks, 4'5 Gallon Pins and 330ml bottles.
Gently Hopped PALE ALE
ALC 4.0% VOL
As the name suggests, an extremely smooth, lightly hopped 4% pale ale. A blend of four quality malts delivers a well balanced body and copper colour. An aroma of soft fruit and honey and balanced bitterness are provided by additions of English hops at four different stages of brewing.
Crisp, American Hopped GOLDEN ALE
ALC 4.2% VOL
Our everyday, easy drinking, golden Session IPA.
New for 2017 - We use 4 American hops to create a citrus blast blanced by a subtle floral aroma. Clear, crisp and hugely refreshing.
Rich & Malty RED ALE
ALC 3.8% VOL
A complex malt base creates a rich, ruby coloured ale.
New for 2017 - Malty and full-bodied with additions of US hops throughout leading to a perfectly blanced ale.
Light Refreshing GOLDEN ALE
ALC 3.8% VOL
Lodestar Festival Ale is a 3.8% refreshing golden ale, the perfect partner to a summer festival.
We use four malts to give full body and pale gold colour, four additions of English hops provide a hoppy fruity aroma, a gentle easy drinking hop bitterness and overall crisp malty taste.
Lodestar Festival Ale is the official ale of the Lodestar Music Festival in Cambridge.
