COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lilla London Special bitter är en mjuk välsmakande ale med lång och påtaglig efterbeska. Råvarorna är till stor del engelska. Pale-, Crystal och Chokladmalt ger smak och härlig färg. Target, Goldings och Fuggles är våra humlesorter. Torrhumling ger ölet angenäm arom och bitterljuvlig karaktär.

Franzen (355) - - SEP 21, 2013
Typical brittish aroma with some roastiness. Unfourtunately there is some metal present. The aroma is nice but could have been more powerful. Some raisin and dark syrup in the taste that don’t really fit in, the bitterness is nice though. The bitterness kind of reminds of tea. The metal is present even in the taste. The palate is nice, light in body and dry as it should be. The finish i short to medium with a nice goldings taste. A nice typical bitter. Not special in anyway but nice as a session beer.

Bottle. Pours clear dark brown/copper with a huge mostly lasting brown fluffy head. Aroma is roasted malt, toffee, metal, vanilla powder, flowers. Taste is a bit more sour than expected, but with a roasted maltiness evident, also some nuts and flowers, ends again light sour, bitter and dry. Body is light to medium, medium carbo, slight sticky texture. A bit unbalanced but there’s potential.
