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.

1st November 2008. BBE August 08. Hazy amber beer. Lively beer! Fruity with a little acidity. Dry fruity finish with a trace of spice. Has a vague Belgian feel about it!
