COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
First brewed by Nottingham Brewery in the 1800's as a refreshing quaffing ale for the thirsty factory workers in the city. Slightly paler than traditional bitter beers of the time it was the forerunner of the India Pale Ale for which the brewery was to become famous and transported thousands and thousands of gallons to the troops of the British Empire all around the globe.

Cask at Merton Beer Festival, Oxfordshire, July 7th and 8th 2006. Golden coloured nicely bitter beer that was a bit on the dry side, hops came through well in this beer and like the Wolf Best Bitter also tried this is a very good session ale that I rather enjoyed.
