Fort Smith - Roosters Beer

An uncompromising American Pale Ale named after the town in which Rooster Cogburn lived.


Brewed using Citra and Chinook hops from the USA to create tropical and passion fruit aromas and a lasting, bitter finish, Fort Smith is a big and bold pale ale brewed in the American style.
