COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned only.
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.

Scuttled is made with a blend of Pale, Crystal and Black barley, with good English hops.
