Completely traditional bitter, easily one of my favourite beers. Classic of the style, but very old fashioned and understandable why some people might not like it. Incredible value for its cheap price.

Nitrogen keg bitter appearance, with a nutty/toffee aroma. The flavour is dry and bitterishly hopped with watery undertones and a slightly acidic quality. Slightly better than your average bitter overall.
