The nose is laced with a Peppery, spicy aroma with hint of apples. The palate has a luscious balance of grain and hop in the mouth, bitter sweet finish with delicate fruit notes. A warm, rounded yet surprisingly delicate pale strong beer.It has won many awards but is best remembered for being voted Champion beer of Britain by Camra in 1988.
