COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
Brigstow is an easy drinking, tawny best bitter. The colour and malty taste come from the crystal and cara malts added to the mash. We then use all English hops in the copper - Challenger for bitterness, followed by a huge amount of Fuggles & East Kent Goldings for loads of flavour and aroma.

Hazy amber beer, little pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and dry and minerally. Mild toffee malt, not that sweet and quite dry. Insipid hops watery citrus. Dry finish. I could go to 500 UK brewers and get a beer like this. Really don’t need one from Arbor, you are better than this!

yngwie (13562) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2013
Bottle. It’s a lighlty hazy one, orange-golden in color and with a small, off-white head. It’s weak on the nose, with some fruits, pale malts and a dusty touch. The flavor is just as boring as the aroma. Pale malts and some fruityness, a tad of bitterness chimes in. Medium body, quite dry. Short, mostly fruity finish. A rather boring one. 130216
