COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available filtered and pasteurised in 500ml bottles.
"This succulent premium ale has a wonderful blend of hops that give spicy and citrus fruit flavours leading into a dried fruit and biscuit malt finish. Twice a gold medal winner at the British Bottlers Institute Awards. Rich and malty as well as fruity and spicy. Nutty amber malt and biscuit pale malt together with crystal malt giving toffee/caramel notes. Fuggles and Styrian hops brings masses of tropical fruit and fragrant spiciness. Robust bitterness is balanced with the full body and mouth feel provided by the malt and the satisfyingly complex hoppiness."
A Ridleys beer, brewed at Greene King since late 2005.

Pisses me off that this gets in every Asda in the country. Whats that all about. Its simple marketing and sales. I hate PR. Stick that in Gabbys pipe. This is very average bitter with a little sweetness in taste and a little soap in smell.

foolberry (56) - New Malden, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2012
Its not bad. Nice rounded taste in the mouth, full bodied, toffee malts. Bit sweet for me. Lonely old men drinking alone in the corner of the pub, roll ups, betting slip, pint of Old Bob. Nice bitter finish.
