Dark

For workers toiling sweat and blood

Tasting Notes

Dark beers used to be the workers' drink of choice after a day's toil, thanks to their light taste. Times have changed, but our CAMRA gold-winning Dark hasn't. Cask-ale fanatics love it for its smooth, well-rounded character, sweet undertones and full malty aftertaste. And modern workers still reach for it after a day at the digital coalface.
