Mainly available bottled. Has been seen in cask.

A deep Amber Ale that balances sweet malts with spicey, peppery rye and warm citrus notes with a long satisfying bitterness. The result is a complex and rewarding beer.

DruncanVeasey (7315) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle at the moment. Kernel clear-to-opaque with the feel of cask. Foggy orange moussed with white. Nose a gentle riot of spearmint, piss, mango, chocolate orange, juniper and peppery rye almost like ginger cake. Squashy and botanical with orange and blackcurrant wine gum, mint, flowers and pine over an incredible depth of oily, smoky, nut-like rye and malt in a delayed and clinging aftertaste. Fuck knows what winter’s got to do with it. Balanced. Pungent. Sticky and cheesy with hops. These boys are serious.
