COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.
A tasty, complex beer with malt and hops throughout and a long, satisfying bitter finish. Well worthy of the title ’Champion Beer of Britain’ award 1997.

Holmen1 (2467) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 3, 2014
0,5 flaske innkjøpt av skibsreder Ovesen og delt med ham på Holmens aktivitetsdag: højt skum som varer til bunns. Nydelig ravfarge og floral aroma. Lett bitterhet i smak og fruktig ettersmak. Meget lettdrikkelig og en utmerket pøsebitter på pub, men hvorfor den ble kåret til Champion beer of Britain i 1999 skjønner jeg ikke helt, synes at den er litt i enkleste laget. Kanskje det er derfor den glir så ubesværet over ganen.

gegwilson (1156) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle from ASDA. Amber with a small off-white head. Quite sweet and malty with caramel notes. A bit fruity with a more bitter finish. Nice enough, but not sure why this was ever a champion beer of Britain.

kwik-lime (1306) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2014
Earthy hops balanced by sweet malt with some caramel and dark fruits. Enjoyable beer, much better than your bog standard brown British bitter.
