Formerly brewed at Eldridge Pope
"Strong Ale". Silver Medal Burton, 1985.
Production ceased in 2001. The name has been used by O'Hanlon's brewery since 2004 for a slightly stronger beer with a similar recipe.
The heart of this beer is a subtle mix of pale & lightly crystallised malts, whose mouth-filling complexity acts as a base for the Northdown, Challenger & Goldings hops, which add higher notes of aroma & bitterness.
