“2* Award winning, strong bottle conditioned barley wine described as heavenly nectar!”
A golden chestnut ale with citrus fruits, juicy malt and spicy hops. A unique style of beer with ‘hop wine’ overtones.
Brewed with 100% pale Maris Otter malt and large quantities of Fuggles & Goldings for aroma. Brewed in the style of a very strong India Pale Ale.

A glass full of character, presented with a beautiful head, and we really appreciated this ale because it is exactly of its type.
