COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is Cellarmaker’s Norcal take on an English bitter. We used a heady blend of hops including Simcoe, Columbus, Sorachi Ace, Centennial, Nelson, Citra, and German Mandarina to give the spicy rye and deep malt flavor a delicate, yet complex hoppy kick.

[Tap] Darker golden pour with a small, but lasting, white head. Bready malts, moderate bitterness and spicy rye in the nose. Flavors of English malts, bread, biscuits and astringent hops. Medium bodied. Low carbonation. More hoppy than expected.

Theydon_Bois (12178) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2015
Keg at the 4th Copenhagen Beer Celebration, Session 3, 02/05/2015. Pale golden with a moderately appointed off white covering. Nose is light florals, bready tones, straw, pale malt, light citric peel. Taste comprises melon, straw, citric pith, tangerine, light bread. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Decent stuff, delivers well on the ABV, coming a cross a little more like a golden blonde than a bitter for me.
