COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
A deep, golden coloured beer created using three types of Optic malt and only progress hops, all grown within the UK. This single varietal ale has all the characteristics of this 'soft' hop: floral notes and a gentle but pervasive bitterness, making it a very drinkable and thirst quenching beer.
