A truly London Bitter brewed in the most traditional way. This best bitter is brewed with British Malt, Yeast and Hops, with London water, passion and heritage. Very rarely do we make a true British beer, but here it is.

jmgreenuk (3563) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle at the "Colin and the Vikings tasting, Goteborg". Poured a hazy light amber with a frothy white head and a little broken lace. The aroma is hop malt. The flavour is medium bitter with a yeast malt hop very light barnyard palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. A little too yeasty for your average bitter but nice and drinkable all the same.
