COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
The first and arguably the most popular of Loose Cannon’s beers. ‘Bridge’ as it’s affectionately known always brings a smile to the face of its drinker with that delicious floral and slightly sweet finish. A fantastic session ale that covers a lot of bases for a wide range of people making it a popular choice for parties.
Hops: Fuggles, Amarillo & Cascade Hops
Tasting Notes: Copper coloured, traditional ‘bitter’. It kicks off with a good bitter bite, followed by plenty of flavour. A full and satisfying roundness.
