COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & Bottle Conditioned; Regular. Previously known as Orme’s Best.
A mouthwatering cask conditioned ale based on a traditional blend of fine British pale ale malt with a subtle addition of crystal, chocolate and black malts to give this prince of beers real character. The delicate addition of Challenger and Goldings hops at critical times of the boil add to the mellow complexity of this beer.
