COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned. 500ml bottles.
Ingredients: Maris Otter, Crystal and Black malts; Northdown hops plus Cascade at the end of the boil.
"A beer conceived by Head Brewer Jeremy Moss, to celebrate the return of Brakspear brewing to Oxfordshire. This is a triple fermented, triple hopped strong beer, packaged in individually numbered bottles. With its high alcohol content and bottle conditioning, this is a beer that will go on to develop further complexity as it matures in its bottle."

500ml bottle served cellar cool in a 1/2 glass for topping up. Honey brown with a white head. Fruity and vinous aroma. Raisins, cough candy, and Gewürztraminer flavours. Medium bodied, slightly oily mouthfeel, little hint of the high alcohol content. Gentle fruity finish.

Kuparinvärinen, mutta kirkas olut. Voimakas maku, mutta monipuolinen, kuiva maku. Jälkimaku pysyy pitkään miellyttävänä suussa.
