A distinctive type of British beer developed as a mixture of different beers. Typically characterised by a balance of malt, roast, hop, bitterness, fruit and spicy flavours. Traditionally with the harsh burnt taste of brown malt many current versions have a full body with roast malt in the aftertaste. ABV is between 3.8 and 6.1%, bitterness around 33 and colour 120 but sometimes up to 300EBC.
