COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
FBC Best Bitter uses all English hops. It is served via a nitrogen dispense system which creates a firm head of smaller bubbles. This allows us to serve the beer with a lower amount of CO2 and thus the flavor of the beer is not dominated by gas tingle on the tongue.

On tap @ Faultline. Light amber colored beer with a thick khaki head. Fairly malt forward and sweet. Some bread, toast, and a lot of floral hops. Actually not half bad, though certainly watery. Maybe a little bit of a creamsicle note with a bunch of orange candy and a bit of butterscotch.

Draft, nitrogen pour. Thick head, ruby amber color, clear when settled. Solid moderate bitterness, smooth.... good for style.

Tap. Pours clear deep amber with a medium creamy off white head that dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is faint caramel, cardboard. Flavor is the same, light sweet, light bitter. Medium body, creamy.

illidurit (2284) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 14, 2012
Backlog purge. On tap at the inaugural Hop N Barley festival in Scotts Valley. Just super boring brewpub fare. Mealy malty with tea-like hoppiness. Yawn.

Koskela (505) - Marysville, California, USA - JUN 10, 2012
Didnt smell much aroma it was a medium amber color that was crystal clear. Had a slight sweet/bitter taste that reminded me of an irish red. It was very smooth. Overall not bad

Ungstrup (34219) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2011
Draft. An amber beer with a dense nitro head in an orangey shade. The aroma has light notes of hops and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and caramel as well as a light note of hops.

JaBier (6878) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - SEP 10, 2010
Sample at the brewpub on 8/10/10. Clear amber pour with a thick tan nitro head. Typical nose for the style with dank malt, caramel and a bit of fruitiness. Flavor starts with caramel malt and a bit of diacetyl before an earthy hop finish.

KUEric (936) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 2, 2010
Nitro long lasting lil bubbles. Very caramel-y taste. Some light brown sugar and molasses. More sweet flavors than I expected, also suprised it wasn’t rated higher than it is. Not that it’s a good bitter but rather it’s got hints of barleywine note I said hints as in justbarely.
