COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask and bottle: Regular.
Recently released, this uniquely zesty straw-gold premium beer has already made a huge impression. Packed with complexity and intense tropical fruit flavours – the recipe is a well guarded secret. Citra hops have been spotted at Oldershaw on brew days… but that’s all that’s known!
