COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
Previously Best Bitter, name changed in to Hooky Bitter in April 2005. "Bitter" subsequently dropped from the name. ABV reduced from 3.6% to 3.5% in 2012.
A subtly balanced, golden bitter, hoppy to the nose, malty on the palate - the classic session beer, eminently drinkable.

This is a beer that definitely shines in the cask - perhaps the dry hopping makes all the difference.
