The first new ale brewed in Windsor for more than 80 years and launched on St George’s Day 2010.

This beer is a classic English Best Bitter, brewed with premium floor malted Maris Otter and traditional whole leaf hops including Fuggles and Goldings. The result is a lovely copper- coloured session strength ale with a tangy taste. The distinctive hop aroma is derived from use of both late hop additions and also a hop-back.

The famous bearskin hats worn by the Guard regiments based in Windsor was our inspiration for the bottle label and original pump clip. The new pump clip shows all five of the Guards regiments. You can tell each regiment apart by the number of buttons and the colour and position of the plume. The Coldstream Guards are currently garrisoned here and they have pairs of buttons with a red plume worn on the left side of the bearskin.

Available in cask, keg and 500ml bottles (4.2% ABV) throughout the year.
