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.

On tap @ Cellarmaker. Clear copper beer with a white head. A bitter with a bunch of newfangled American hops, eh? Alright. Despite the hops that are offered here, I get a fairly floral and grassy hop aroma to start before the citrus, melon, and stone fruits start to come through. Get some lemon, orange, grapefruit, and cantaloupe. Pretty interesting combination. Maybe some dried pineapple, too. Pretty substantial malt flavor (or is that flavour?) here of toasted grain and bread. Haven’t loved some of their British-inspired offerings, but this was a nice enough beer.

Taste resembles more of a mild than a bitter. Light copper and clear with retained head. Not a ton of hops here, but fine overall.
