Lacons Brewery is launching a new beer for Halloween, with Phantom set to hit pubs from next week.

Lacons PhantomThe beer was originally brewed for Norwich Beer Festival in 2016, but after receiving so much great feedback for the ale, the brewer decided to bring it into its seasonal calendar and make it available to pubs each year.

This year’s batch has already pre-sold to so many pubs in Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire, that another batch is in the making.

Phantom (4.6% ABV) is described as a “hauntingly golden” pale ale, flavour packed with a “complex soul” of ripe citrus. A faint undertone of berries and apricot on the end provide a dry bitter finish.
