COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Regular;
This is our premium strength bitter, ruby coloured with a rich flavour and full body. The balance between bitterness and fruitiness from the Bramling Cross and Fuggle hops used give XB the distinctively complex aroma, making it the beer to savour.

zimbo (901) - SCOTLAND - MAY 3, 2015
Cream head on a brown body. Some sort of interesting malt aroma coming off there but in general this just seems to be a ramped up Theakston Best Bitter.
