COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned. Available occasionally on cask as Priors Gold.
A good robust bitter. Some crystal malt gives a slight golden colour while a dry rich hoppy bitterness makes for a refreshing experience.

olio (5283) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 29, 2012
50 cl bottle.
Pours pale clear golden color with a large head. Aroma of grassy hops, some citrus fruits and caramel. Flavor is pretty much the same with some floral and herbal notes on the finish. Bitter and crisp palate. Better and certainly hoppier than I expected.
