One of four specially commissioned beers brewed by four different local brewers to celebrate The Scots Guards being awarded the freedom of Wantage. Each beer is also named after the battles that Lord Wantage fought in the Crimea.
The beers are named after the Battles that Robert James Lindsay (Later Baron Wantage of Lockinge) fought as a Scots Fusilier Guard. VC Citation "When the formation of the line of the Regiment was disordered at Alma, Captain Lindsay stood firm with the Colours, and by his example and energy, greatly tended to restore order".
At Inkerman, at a most trying moment, he, with a few men, charged a party of Russians, driving them back, and running one through the body himself.

Cask, handpump at The Shoulder of Mutton, Wantage, Oxon 29.07.11 Pours amber with a white bubbly head. Fruity with a dab of toffee. Touch chewy, little bit of freshly laundered clothing on nose now and then some caramel in mouth. There is a streak of confectionary throughout this beer but itís a bit like one of those sweets brought back from foreign excursions, i.e. looks great but tastes unusual. A7 A3 T6 P3 Ov13 3.2
