COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
The addition of roasted malt produces a rich brown beer and mouthfeel, counterbalanced by sufficient hops to rise to the nose and to refresh the throat of the most parched of sailors in a subtle complexity of flavours and texture found only when brewed with integrity in ingredients.
