Bringing you the same quality to keg that we do to cask working hard to preserve all the flavours and aromas of the top quality malt and hops used in every brew.
Red in colour and so beautifully fruity by nature, you’d be forgiven for thinking this is one of your five a day. It’s not…..but it should be! Five hops and five malts combine to produce a symphony of fruitiness.
