COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Modeled after the British-style "bitter" this is the lightest and least bitter beer we brew. Crisp and refreshing with just a hint of hops.

The version I had on tap is a new recipe of the Little Barley Bitter. ABV 4.2. Aroma is grassy/earthy hops and clean malt. A hint of grain chewiness, low bitterness, not much going on here.

Tap - not much head, clear dark gold color, fairly balanced aroma and flavor, pretty dry, mild fruit notes - not bad overall ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sampled on tap at Barley Johns. Pours a golden orange color with white head. Grainy, earthy, bitter flavors. Light bodied, lower carbonation.

Pint at Brew Pub. Underwhelmed by this one, even already accounting that it’s a less desirable style

1FastSTi (3336) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Tap at Barley Johns. The beer pours to a hazy effervescent straw colored body with a creamy off white head and spotty lacing. The aroma is similar to an English bitter but much lighter and brighter. Clean light bitter hop and malt. So light it is like a simple barley wash. Very good with crisp and clean flavors. Smooth with no flaws. A true session beer.

Tap @ Barley Johns. Pours a clear, dark golden appearance with a white head and nice lacing. Toasty, bready malty, caramel, a bit earthy aroma. Dark caramel, a bit watery, straw, grassy, lightly bitter flavor.

On tap at BJ, straight middle of the road beer for me, while it was quite nice and very balanced it didnt do anything for me, felt like drinking extra calories for nothing.

Has a really light sweet wheat scent, pours a golden color with no head. Really light plain taste, with a little wheat/grain. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
