COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available filtered and pasteurised in 500ml bottles.
"This succulent premium ale has a wonderful blend of hops that give spicy and citrus fruit flavours leading into a dried fruit and biscuit malt finish. Twice a gold medal winner at the British Bottlers’ Institute Awards. Rich and malty as well as fruity and spicy. Nutty amber malt and biscuit pale malt together with crystal malt giving toffee/caramel notes. Fuggles and Styrian hops brings masses of tropical fruit and fragrant spiciness. Robust bitterness is balanced with the full body and mouth feel provided by the malt and the satisfyingly complex hoppiness."
A Ridley’s beer, brewed at Greene King since late 2005.

GNome (41) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2008
Bottle, pleasantly surprised by the huge hop aroma on pouring the bottle, even more surprised by the huge hop taste - that became quite sickly about half way through the beer. Guess ’hop oils’ or whatever have been used and unfortunately in too high a dose for me.
