COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
When Daniel Thwaites was embarking on his brewing career, the INDUS would have been voyaging to the East Indies – trading Lancashire cotton for exotic Eastern delights. Our INDUS Pale Ale celebrates ales of that period with a refreshing brew enriched with abundant hops for flavour that stays fresh and crisp to the finish.
Refreshing amber ale, brewed with four hop varieties for superb taste and aroma.
