COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our secret weapon. A fulsome, winsome strong ale. A deep copper tinged brew for the true aficionado, longer fermentation and thrice hopping bring about a complex soft bitterness allied to a malt induced sweetness with the characteristic oily Fuggles hop perfume. Not just for students. Once "stuffed" savour the flavour of a glass as a digestif... True "Aroma-therapy".

Grain: Pale Malt, Roast Barley, Black Malt, Flaked Barley.
Hops: Galena, Nugget, East Kent Goldings.

Flaske_ Ravfarvet mĝrkorange klar ĝl med et fint hvidt skumhoved ovenpċ. Duft af ebgelsk humle og en smule malt. Der er en kende ubalance hvor det er som om humle og malt t ikke er integreret. Men den smager fint nok i sine enkelte dele.
