COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
Named after Paisley's river, White Cart Water, this golden full bodied ale boasts smacks of flavour. The appearance is enhanced by a touch of wheat malt, giving good head retention and a wonderfully dry after-taste that won't be easily forgotten. As the name suggests feel free to enjoy 'Cart Blanche' as the mood dictates.
