An interesting name that. Partly, for having the descriptor “best” in a beer off just over 3% ABV. Also, for avoiding the term “mild”. I’m not sure when they adopted the name. in the 1964 records, it’s simply described as X.

Putting the recipe together was a bit of a nightmare. On account of all the sugar. Namely, Flo Sweet, DAS and CDM. I know what the last was: Caramelised Dextro-Maltose. A shame it isn’t available. Flo Sweet seems to have been some form of liquid cane sugar. I’ve no idea about DAS. I’ve used a combination of caramel and No. 3 invest as a substitute for all three sugars.

The rest of the grist is no problem: pale and crystal malt, flaked maize and malt extract. All very standard ingredients. As were the two types of English hops.
