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's rating

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.

Fruta de hueso y galleta en nariz. En boca frutos secos y maltas. Bebible, pero le falta intensidad y amargor. BB 28/02/2018

Clear amber, tanned lacing foam head. Somehow I like the subtle taste of the English bitters. Nice hoppy aroma and bitter enough taste. (Velp 201706)

500ml bottle. Medium malt and molasses, light lemon taste. Unremarkable but enjoyable bitter.

Solid if not unspectacular ale. Bought at Jason’s in the 101 for more money than I would have liked. Clear copper colour. Head lingers for a while leaving some good lacing. Dry with a tang of dried fruits, such as orange and maybe sultana. Malty finish. No overly strong characteristics but easy to drink. Overall tho, solid.
