COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An Extra Special Bitter from yesteryear. A blend of 5 different malts with East Kent Goldings and Progress hops both in the copper and dry hopped. A juicy fruit aroma, slightly floral yet not so much as to overpower the delicious aromatic malty notes. Gently bitter, mouth filling malt with the classic Goldings finish. A wonderfully rounded, complex beer. A true original English ale.

Gravity, half-pint at Bree Louise. Deep, dark amber. Dotted spots to the glass. Smell of fruity caramel. Choco-caramel malts added by juicy fruits in the flavour character. Bitter malty ending. Satisfying (London. 05.11.2012).
