The pale brown to amber medium bodied beer has a strong hop character. It's a bitter but with unconventional warm tones of malt that lingers on the palette, the complex malty flavours gives richness, balanced by the clean hoppy finish. A good session bitter brewed with local British hops picked from the farm seven miles down the road in Worcestershire - Fuggles, Goldings, Challenger and Progress.
The 10 litre polypin of beer holds approx. 18 pints, sometimes termed a 'bag in a box' it consists of a plastic bag in a rigid cardboard box with a dispensing tap.
