COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.

A very brown best bitter, with dry malt tones, the kind of best bitter thatís hard to find these days due to the propensity for UK breweries to produce Brewers Gold/Hophead/JHB clones. Some dry malt/golden syrup/malt loaf, but not heavy either. A best bitter.
