This is one of there limited offerings but I don't know if it's seasonal or a one-timer.

There is a poster in the bathroom that has a general recipe for this beer: Pale Malt, Crystal, and Munich. East Kent Goldings for bittering, then Fuggles, then East Kent Goldings again.

This beer pours a deep orange red hue. The head is modest and creamy. The aroma reminds me of my own British style bitters made with the same hops. The aroma is a bit restrained. The first taste is a pretty surprising bite of hop bitterness. There's a lot of floral hop flavor too, so it's not just bitter bitter. After wincing, I was rewarded with a mild malt backbone, with a distinct biscuit like flavor. The balance is pretty good. The bitterness fades but it's quite dry. Medium body. This is a nice British style pale ale. It's definitely got a hop bite but no one would mistake it for an IPA. I think the bitterness might limit its drinkability
