COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & bottle conditioned; Regular.
Previously known as Orme’s Best.

A mouthwatering cask conditioned ale based on a traditional blend of fine British pale ale malt with a subtle addition of crystal, chocolate and black malts to give this prince of beers real character. The delicate addition of Challenger and Goldings hops at critical times of the boil add to the mellow complexity of this beer.

It's a best bitter, but one as carbonated as a Diet Coke so rather strange on the tongue, though not unpleasant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Taste of caramel, bready malts, some toffee, slight fruit, a hint of molasses and subtle floral hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A soft, short, malty bitterness in the finish.
