Cask; Occasional (Wicked Women series). Also available bottled, primarily for export to the United States.
Part of the Brewster’s "Wicked Woman" series, this copper-colored ale uses three English hops - Northdown, Progress, and Fuggles - to create a complex hop character that perfectly balances its roasted malt flavors.
