COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Filtered, pasteurised and force-carbonated. Available in kegs and cans.
Originally brewed by Samuel Webster in the Fountain Head Brewery in Halifax. Brewed at John Smiths from 1996. In 2003, the Websters brands were acquired by a company called Silvan Brands, about whom it has proved impossible to obtain any information other than that their registered office is in Edinburgh. The beers have been brewed under contract at Thomas Hardy Burtonwood since 2004.

Bronstein (175) - Göttingen, GERMANY - DEC 13, 2002
Uninteresting light Bitter which offers just a little bit less of everything other bitters offer. There is little body and little cream. It’s not really crisp and not even very bitter. Flavours of malt and metal. Bittersweet finish. Some bitterness remains in the aftertaste.

very very bland and boring industrial cask bitter. very slightly malty-fruity. at least drinkable, unlike other courage bitters.

Traditional English bitter, but with a slightly more than needed bitterness. Very little aroma, very little glass activity. Average.
