COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Special Bitter is the middle position on the English “Bitter” Beer continuum, between (Ordinary) Bitter and ESB (or Extra Special Bitter). It has a higher alcohol percentage, is more bitter, and is often darker in color with a bigger body and a more complex malt bill. This ‘Special Bitter’ is a play off of our year-round Little Barley Bitter, tweaked in the ways described above, including the addition of an infrequently seen, traditional British hop varietal: Whitbred Goldings.

BVery (6131) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 24, 2012
Tap at Barley Johns. Amber pour with a clingy head. Mild nose that is a bit earthy and sweet. Smooth palate. Taste is malt balanced with some earthy hops. Nice brew.
