COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
This brew uses pale lager malt which gives it a wonderful golden hue. This is complemented by using a dwarf variety hop (First Gold) which imparts a prodominently citrus aroma. It is dry without harshness, crisp and full flavoured, a hugely refreshing bitter.

In my opinion, much the best of the Bath Ales. Nice colour, good grip on the palate, excellent flavour, lingering aftertaste. Refreshing and individual.

The pump clip simply read ’Special’ rather than SPA but it is the same drink. Lighter golden with not much head, it has a pleasant drier malty character to it.
