COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Hops of Brixton is a classic British-style extra special bitter (ESB). It starts with British Maris Otter malt for a toasty backbone that’s accented with light and dark British caramel malts, adding distinctive toffee notes. Flaked barley adds a gentle silkiness to the mouthfeel. Hops from the East Kent region of England create a floral and earthy hop profile to perfectly balance the malt. London’s calling!

On draft. Kind of a citrus hopsy take on an ESB. Licorice at the beginning and a tangerine hops finish. Very nice.

Theydon_Bois (9944) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2014
Keg at Beachwood, Long Beach, 17/04/14. Clear golden with a moderate off white covering. Nose is biscuit malt, dark fruit rinds, bitter orange. Taste comprises more biscuit malt, light caramel, grass, fruit peel. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. So so ESB but at least an attempt to be truer to style than most - ie not overloaded with hops!

First beer at Beachwood LB, and its a nice intro to their beer, solid malt to back up the perceived bitterness from the english hop. Maris otter is so played out.

Pour on tap at the brewery, dark orange-red pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, slight cherry, red fruits in there, lots of spice notes and grainy grass notes. Taste is a mix of dark toffee, caramel, slight red and dark fruits, slight spice notes, hints of earth, grass, touch of yeasty notes as well, finishing bitter, slightly sweet.
