We were pleased to be involved in the design of the artwork for the newly launched Starboard! Ale from Goddards Brewery. Starboard! is an easy drinking 4% golden session ale in March. It’s a new recipe that combines English hops with Pale Ale and Cara malt to deliver a distinctive orangey flavour and a citrus aroma, with a wonderful hoppy finish.
Golden bitter is one of the UK’s most popular types of real ale and Starboard! will be well placed not only to satisfy this growing market, but also reflect the Isle of Wight’s long association with sailing. Sailors can be heard shouting “Starboard!” as a warning when maneuvering at sea in close quarters with another boat. The established ‘right of way’ when under sail is given to boats on a starboard tack. The pump clip also features a starboard marker buoy which is distinguished by its flashing green light so people will see this beer coming!
Starboard! will be available locally on the Isle of Wight and across the country in cask and bottles during March.
