Nico Köln Lager - 4.8% abv
Named for Christa Päffgen under her singing alias Nico, who came from Cologne, the city of Kölsch.
This multi-award-winning lager pours pale and golden. A fragrant herbal hop aroma with lemon citrus and green apple notes. Light on the palate, a touch of bready maltiness, with more assertive hop character. The crisp bitterness makes it eminently drinkable. Look for the pear drop notes from the distinctive Kölsch yeast.

Dead Wax London Porter - 5.5% abv
Our multi-award-winning Dead Wax is our take on a classic London Porter. Based on the late nineteenth-century interpretation of the style. Complex rich malt, with aromas of chocolate, coffee, caramel and malty biscuit. More chocolate, coffee and black treacle on the palate. Rich full body, robust bitterness and a subtle earthy/lemony hop character combine to create a distinctively dry and drinkable dark ruby coloured beer.

Barrel-aged Lentebock - 7.4% abv
Lentebock is a strong Dutch lager, brewed to celebrate the arrival of spring. Orbit Lentebock was originally brewed as part of our White Label Series in 2021 and we decided to age a portion in Heaven Hill whisky barrels with Brettanomyces, due for release in the winter of 2022 as part of our Digger’s Series.
The result is a barrel-aged Lentebock (7.4%abv). Aromas of smoky leather and pineapple with a touch of caramel. The flavour is slightly acidic with a boozy warmth. A rounded bitterness that is balanced with a moreish sweetness and a dry finish.
