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 tap at the brewpub. Pours with a clear golden orange hued body with a lasting, tight off-white head. Aromas are bready, biscuity, grassy, orange, marmalade, mineral, nice earthy and floral hop character. Medium ester, good balance. Flavors are grainy, bready, estery, marmalade, medium low, but balanced bitterness. Medium carbonation, decently dry and a bit minerally in the finish.

On tap at their place in Long Beach. Pours a copper amber with a thin off white head. Aroma is slight malt and slight caramel. Flavor follows with a bit more bitterness than most ESBs. But overall, a nice, drinkable beer.

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

Theydon_Bois (14996) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, 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!
