On cask at the Griffin, Haslingden (where its brewed). Alluring bright copper/bronze colour. A best bitter with a distinctly traditional feel. It is markedly malty, but there’s plenty of citric hop presence and a fair whack of bitterness too. This all contributes to a well balanced beer with a clean and composed mouthfeel. Its refreshing too. The aroma’s a bit subdued though. Not a world beater, but solid and assured.
