COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled only; Pasteurised.
This well hopped beer is derived from our Sussex Best Bitter. Bottled for ’The Albion’, a blend of four different ’aroma’ hop varieties imparts a delicate bitterness which is balanced by the residual sweetness of malt sugars.

The taste is bitter, toasted grain, earth, brown bread, touch of caramel, cereal, light spice and leaves with a dry finish. Light-medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Nice bitterness to it. A quaffable bitter.
