Notes:

This beer is long gone but from memory it was good! Challenger makes a pretty decent single hop bitter, woody and a bit orangey. Solid bitterness with a decent malt backbone. Think I prefer slightly darker bitters as a rule but this drank well and was refreshing enough to keep drinking as the weather warmed up a bit.
