According to the brewery, this bitter was brewed with only locally grown hops, and wet-hopped with hops grown on-site at the brewery.

Appearance - bronze-coloured and quite clear with a thin head that dissiptes fairly quickly to a persistent ring.

Smell - The nose is full of earthy English hops aromas, but also a healthy dose of citrus and a pleasant musty basement smell. Malt aromas are subdued, but present.

Taste - Bread, butterscotch, dusty hops, and a smooth bitterness tat leads into a finish that has a touch of discetyl that works nicely.

Mouthfeel - medium bodied with a slight stickiness and low carbonation that is true to style.
