COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg.
Helles pale lager. Hopped with a combination of British First Gold and Hallertau Perle, Freedom Four has an initial sweetness that slides into a hoppy bitter finish. Mid-weight body and great smoothness ensure it’s easy-drinking, while lively natural carbonation refreshes through to a crisp finish.
Freedom Four is available in 50 litre kegs, along with a range of dispense options, point of sale material and glassware.
