Commercial Description

There's a story about some farm labourers who thought that the reflection of the moon in a pond, not far from our brewery, was a lovely truckle of Lancashire cheese.

    Made with German Pilsner malt with a touch of Wheat and biscuit malts. this beer is finished with Hallertauer Hersbrucker hops and is suprisingly quaffable.
