Commercial Description:  Bitter is not always better when it comes to craft beer. As a beer style, this red ale is intended to be malt-forward, offering toffee and caramel sweetness which is beautifully balanced by a restrained use of hops. The natural rich red colour comes from the generous use of imported roasted barley and specialty malts. Finishes clean and smooth, leaving you wanting more.
