COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Filtered bottle.
Originally produced for the wholesaler LWC Jollys at the, now defunct, Ring O Bells brewery in Cornwall. After the closure of Ring O Bells, Jollys changed the branding of a number of the bottled beers to Carn Brea and moved production (via Keltek) to Hepworth. The recipes may differ from the originals.

harrisoni (13632) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2006
500ml bottle from Cask & Glass, Tonbridge. Attractive clear chestnut colour with lasting beige head. Malty aroma, bit of coffee. Malty in mouth with odd tasting herby hop finish. Choc herb hop on finish. Just a bit of lack of depth but the malt really is very tasty. I would rate it higher but I am not that fond of the hop profile.
