COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Seasonal (April to October). Known as Sussex Golden Ale in bottles.

A cool golden summer ale. Very refreshing with a balanced complexity. It was first produced in 2005 to celebrate our major summer award at Kensington Olympia for Best Bitter. It became an instant hit and is especially appreciated when served at 11 degrees Celsius.

Contains: Barley.
