COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & Bottle Conditioned, Regular;
First launched as a seasonal bitter in 1995, Shropshire Lad was inspired by the collection of poems by AE Housman. It quickly proved so popular that we made the beer available all year round. Shropshire Lad is a strong, well-rounded bitter whose cascade of flavours come from a careful blend of selected English malted barley, traditional English Fuggles and Golding hops. It is now our best-seller on draught, and in the bottle.
