FULLERS GALES/Horndean Special Bitter

A silky-smooth premium ale, Horndean Special Bitter was originally the flagship beer of Gales Brewery in Hampshire. First launched in 1959, it’s still brewed with the same passion and pride today – and the age-old recipe continues to go down a storm.

Brewed with the finest malt and hops, HSB imparts the rich, soft-fruit flavours of traditional Dundee cake. It’s a tawny, russet coloured beer, with malt and raisin on the nose – and a gentle sweetness that lingers long into the silky smooth finish.
