Bottle conditioned; Special.
Each version of this beer uses the same base recipe but only one variety of hop is used in each. This allows the drinker to experience the unique characteristics of a single hop variety on itís own. They are made in a similar way to Restoration but only conditioned for 3 months prior to bottling and there is only 1300 numbered bottles made in a year. Trials were carried out with a number of different hop varieties and the low alpha "aroma" type hops gave some of the most interesting results.
