COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
Formerly known as Celtic Dragon and brewed at 4.6%.
Also available bottle conditioned as Extravaganza.
A refreshing contemporary cask conditioned golden ale full of citrus taste and aroma. This ale is brewed using a single pale ale malt giving at a lovely golden colour. Citrus flavoured hops are used during the boil to produce an intense fruity flavour which is often enjoyed as a more flavorsome alternative to lager.
