Get an outside edge with Sticky Wicket

Inspired by cricket's oldest rivalry, Sticky Wicket pitches together English and Australian ingredients in a tropical, refreshing pale ale. With grapefruit and lychee notes racing through the covers of a biscuity malt base, you'll be stumped to find a better brew for the beer garden…

'How's that' for a summer seasonal?

If willow on leather is the sound of English summer, then Sticky Wicket might just be its taste. Found at the bar between May and July, it's a crisp, clean and fruity pale ale, perfect for savouring throughout the cricket season.

A blend of English Pale Ale and Munich malts provide the biscuit background, while the Australian Topaz and Ella hops form a formidable partnership to bring distinctive tropical flavours to the fore.

Brewer's notes

Brewed to 4.7% ABV, Sticky Wicket opens with a pale gold pour and the appealing aromas of fruity hops. On the palate, the Topaz hop adds a resinous grassy flavour with gentle hints of lychee, while the Ella hop hits the winning runs with tropical grapefruit notes and a subtle spicy finish.
