The beer that Paul Holgate created to mark the brewery's 10th anniversary was one dusted down from the pages of his old home brewing recipe book. It's been released ever since as a winter seasonal, tweaked along the way too. It's back to warm the cockles during the colder months once more, it being a reimagining of the Northern English style that's loaded up with lashings of Australian macadamia nuts and hearty English malts to create a brew that the brewers like to claim "smokes a pipe and spins a yarn". It's one of our favourites from the Holgate range, a great match with game and other hearty foods and a suitable winter session beer with heaps of rich, malty (and nutty of course) character. Now in a more sessionable 5.3 per cent and 500ml format too.
