COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Seasonal - Spring.
A delightful full mashed biscuity bitter, with an emphasis on dry and crisp malt characters. The tasty body is complemented with a mildly bittered yet well flavoured hop character. The powerful sweet and fruity late aromas lend to a well-balanced hop mélange.
