A well flavoured, clean tasting, amber coloured session bitter. A roasted malt aroma leads to a fruity, slightly sweet taste, followed by a dry, long lasting finish. Brewed using Pale Ale and Crystal malts, hopped with Fuggles and Goldings. Trotton won Best Bitter class at the Portsmouth Winterfest 1994.
