COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a reincarnation of the 68/- brewed by Ushers of Edinburgh in 1885. This is a beer to sip slowly, not only because of its alcoholic warmth, but to appreciate the complex flavours and the long, hop finish. This is not a sweet beer, yet there are flavours of crystallized sugars and sweet dried fruits.
