COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
Originally brewed by Thwaites, the brand was contract brewed at Marston’s Wolverhampton plant (Banks’s) from 2013, then bought completely by Marston in March 2015. The brand initially continued to be sold under the Thwaites name and logo, but by 2016 the Thwaites name had been dropped.
"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."

Ingevara (910) - - MAY 23, 2012
Lasting frothy head that cings to the inside of the glass. Light brown color, welcoming fragrance of wet mittens and high mountains. Just the right flavor of malt, dried fruit, some resin and grass. Balanced bitterness. Deep lingering aroma that even works on expanding your mind. An english bitter at its best.

Lancaster Bomber supposedly a classic English Ale chestnut in colour. It’s another from the Marstons Brewery of Wolverhampton and this ain’t too shabby either. Quite like this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from a local Lidl. Aroma is malty with notes of caramel toffee. Moderate sweet flavour with a moderate bitter finish. Light to medium body. Drinkable, but doesn't have a lot of character.

Fles gedeeld met Benzai. Oranje tot amberkleurig bier met mooie witte schuimkraag. Weinig aroma, beetje moutig. Smaak is hoppig en hooi-achtig. Nasmaak is iets bitter.
