COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available filtered and pasteurised in 500ml bottles.
Originally brewed by Thwaites, the brand was contract brewed at Marston’s Wolverhampton plant (Banks’s) from 2013, then bought completly by Marston in March 2015. The brand continues to be sold under the Thwaites name and logo.
"This rich amber beer is brewed with only the finest English ingredients. A prominent hop aroma and bitterness throughout is finely balanced with a full malt flavour, leading to a dry bitter finish."

Quafco (10) - - APR 14, 2016
Bottle - good shape and label, these are often overlooked but are definitely part of the quaffing experience. Would have liked a picture of the mighty Avro Lancaster the beer is a tribute to but a minor quibble. Beer - good dark amber colour, not too light or heavy, balance good. Bitter notes, a nice rounded bitter. Good with nuts, sandwiches.

Bottle at home. Clear deep golden pour, white head. Aroma of crispy hops, slighty fruity, some grains, malty and a bit of citrus. Flavor is slightly bitter, slightly malty and quite clean and smooth. Simple yet well drinkable.

AlfredoGarcia (250) - Santiago, CHILE - AUG 27, 2015
500 ml bottle. Strong bitter smell, hops involved strongly. Dark amber color with a small white head. Better taste than other Thawites that I have tried. Strong, deep and balanced, the same for the palate sensation. Great beer for bombing germans :P
