COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned. 330ml.
Ingredients: Pale malt, Black Crystal malt, Oats, Target hops.
Switched to filtered in 330ml bottles in 2011, then back to bottle conditioned in 2011.
Its high alcohol content along with the molasses and rum flavours create a beautiful contrast with blue cheeses or steak and kidney pie; and complement Dundee cakes or Cadbury’s fruit and nut.
