Deep clear amber. Full white head. Big bitterness. The original Holt’s Bitter is what we’re built on. A true icon and Manchester Bitter.

Much like our northern routes, this cask bitter is full of character with light caramel and malty notes that develop into a solid base with punchy, earthy hops. Biting bitterness from the carefully selected English hops is balanced out by the best English pale ale malt and a gentle carbonation to leave a silky-smooth finish.

Quenchingly good, this is a proper bitter.
