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."

3.6
Excalibur123 (499) - Soria, SPAIN - JUL 4, 2017
Presenta ámbar claro trasparente con media cabeza de espuma de buena retención, aromas a lúpulo herbal, caramelo, cereal y galleta; en boca entrada ligera, refrescante, maltosa con ligero amargor, cuerpo medio y ajustada carbonatación, notas a té y caramelo, retrogusto medio, maltoso y semiseco; cerveza equilibrada y fácil de beber, le falta un poco de amargor para ser una bitter.

Aroma is a little hoppy but not over-powering. Pours a clear amber colour with little head. Decent British-style ale with a malty flavor and a bitter finish. Not bad but far from great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

EvNa (374) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 22, 2017
Bottle. Color: Amber, frothy very light brown head. Taste: Very smooth, malty, bread, caramel. Some bittery hints. Light body, low carbonation.
