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.

Draught @ CBC’15
Aroma is sweet and fruity with citrus and hints of homemade mead. Also biscuits. Flavour has biscuits, hayish malt and citron. Finishes with lingering grapefruity hops. Nice and fruity, not the most typical bitter. Slightly watery but that is the story of this ABV.

Here we go again - barely alcoholic, and with a low 21 ibus, but the hop additions are evident, and the complexity staggering. Sorachi ace especially lends a unique floral soapy quality not usually in this style, as does the rye and it’s subtle spice. Simcoe, Nelson, and citra lend a nice fruitiness. Overall, a unique and tasty brew."
