Smooth, full bodied and full of twists and turns as in each episode of the UK’s original soap. This is a beer made in Manchester, brewed with Northern Soul mixed in with the finest Northdown and Golding hops.

imdownthepub (11663) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2010
Bottle in presentation tube, 500ml from Tesco, Banbury. Brown with slight head. Sweet malty beer that had non of the twists and turns mentioned in the blurb, in fact it was about as predictable as a Christmas Day episode when a tragedy is bound to come along. About as interesting and compelling as a Monday night double episode.
