Part of the original brewery line up at the Black Sheep Brewery when established in 1992. It is made from Maris Otter malted barley and a higher concentrate of Crystal Malt than Best Bitter, so explaining the darker colour. The hops used include Challenger and Progress with Goldings most prominent.
