Okell's bitter "changing dramatically already"

Ex-Head Brewer not impressed with product

The former Head Brewer at Okell's claims the company's flagship bitter is "changing dramatically already".

Dr Mike Cowbourne resigned from Heron and Brearley last month, after almost 40 years in charge of ales at the Island's largest brewery.

It's thought a managerial shake-up was the reason for his resignation.

In a post on social media, Dr Cowbourne said he'd tried Okell's bitter in a few pubs, before adding "bye bye #Okells, rest in peace".
