What the label says:

Introducing Pedigree or “P” as it was first known.  Strange that, looking back.  Anyway, it has a fascinating aroma, with a palate of biscuity malt, spicy hops and light fruitiness.  It was renamed in a staff competition back in George Peard’s day.  He was our Head Brewer at the time – that’s him on the front.  Cheers George.

Bottle conditioned beers contain live yeast, which smooths and enhances the depth of flavour of the beer over time.  The maturing process from the yeast also means the flavour is much closer to cask Pedigree you can taste in the pub.

What the Beerdrinker says:

It has a very malty and yeasty nose, with no trace of the fruitiness promised on the label.  The overriding taste is one of saltiness, presumably from the gypsum content of the Burton water.  The salty taste becomes overpowering unless the beer is swallowed quickly.
