“A traditional chestnut coloured easy drinking bitter”

Originally named Napoleon’s Retreat after Mike Harding’s (the ‘Rochdale Cowboy’) poem but renamed in 2015 this chestnut ale is brewed in the traditional NW style. It is an easy drinking full flavoured bitter, but well-rounded with some residual sweetness, with tastes of fruit and vanilla balanced with a resinous hop character. A very popular beer that deserves to be savoured!
