A malty multiple-winner of CAMRA’s Champion Premium Beer of Britain, our much loved XXXB is what you’d call an English tawny beer. Just like the first batch we crafted in 1978, it’s brewed with four malts and three varieties of hops, for a deliciously spicy, fruity and biscuity flavour.

In the past we brewed Otter Bright only in the summer. With the new dawn of interest in cask beer, it is perfectly positioned as a great beer for 'new age drinkers' who are discovering cask ale. It is so pale that it can easily be mistaken for lager and it delivers a great bitter citrus flavour with lots of fizz.
