COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular.
A superb mix of Maris Otter pale, Munich and Carapils malts along with East Kent Goldings, Styrian Goldings and Cascade hops. By combining Maris Otter, the best British ale malt, with malts normally used in the finest continental lagers gives a beer with good body, caramelised undertones and a distinct gold colour. This fine recipe gives a beer that will appeal to ale drinkers and lager drinkers alike.
