A recreation of the classic English pub ales, this uses the Maris Otter malt and Fuggles hops found in many UK beers. Burnished copped in colour, the hops are of the earthy, grassy variety and lend the beer a lingering, floral aftertaste and mild bitterness - although not before your palate's experienced a little chocolate and the slightest hint of smokiness from the malts. Originally designed for cask conditioning - and very occasionally found in said format - it was tweaked to become a little fuller bodied in 2013. It was a wise tweak as the beer then picked up Best British Ale at the 2014 Australian International Beer Awards.
