COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
Originally brewed by Thwaites, the brand was contract brewed at Marston’s Wolverhampton plant (Banks’s) from 2013, then bought completely by Marston in March 2015. The brand initially continued to be sold under the Thwaites name and logo, but by 2016 the Thwaites name had been dropped.
"This rich amber beer is brewed with only the finest English ingredients. A prominent hop aroma and bitterness throughout is finely balanced with a full malt flavour, leading to a dry bitter finish."

Bottle split at JF’s, thanks to Tony, 23/08/13. Clear golden amber with a good sized frothy light beige head. Nose is caramel malt, biscuit, toffee. The taste is a little thinner in comparison, tea bags, toffee, malty, light hop presence. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, dry finish with a little hop bitterness. Ok stuff - better than I’d remembered having not had this for a good 5 or more years.
