The definitive English bitter. Golden in colour with a smooth, mellow taste. Brewed and (dry hopped) using Fuggle hops. A satisfying, refreshing pint: initial sweetness is quickly balanced by subtle fruitiness and moderate hop bitterness. In short, you should expect a full flavour and bitter-sweet palate.
