COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Seasonal - Spring.
Originally brewed in July 1994 to celebrate the trussing-in of Peter Coates, the new brewery cooper.
This robust ale exhibits a maltiness with underlying tones of luscious cane sugars whilst the use of Bramling Cross dry hops contribute to the striking aroma and palate.
