Notes

This British Strong Ale is fresh, malty, and presents some notable English hops and a surprising hint of orange to the nose and the palate. This brilliant dark amber ale is great for those nights at the pub with your mates or the night in watching the tele.
If it is a question to pour or not to pour, let's make pour decisions.
