COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This single-hop session Bitter has big flavor, but low alcohol. So you can stay classy after a few at ye olde pub.
Maris Otter Pale and English Crystal malts with Citra hops create a bold body and refreshing bitterness you’ll want to session again and again. Pairs great with steak and kidney pie.

Best served 7c-13c
OG: 9.5°P

650ml brown bottle. 2012 limited edition, 3.6%abv, Dark golden pour, short white cap with decent creaminess, sticky edges and long lasting lace. Nose has light caramel and a nice grapefruity note. Taste has dryish malt with a touch of caramel, light citrusy-grapefruit hops. Finish has light malts, light bitterness. Body is light, pretty smooth mouthfeel. A decent brew, nicely hopped for a session bitter.

THE 2012 LIMITED EDITION (PROBABLY SAME RECIPE AS BEFORE) Single bottle purchased from Willow Park Wine & Spirits on 09/22/2012. Colour: Medium brown with medium just slightly brownish creamy head. Nose: Mostly dark grain but a touch of sulphurous gas. Some sort of unidentified woody herb. Hints of butterscotch. Taste: Medium-light sweet, medium bitter, light sour. Bitter? Yes, but not to the extent that I predicted - buy completely dominant with hop notes like pine and citrus. Still quite nice. A bit of red wine vinegar pops up. Long and lingering bitter finish...yum! I love when a beer is made with low alcohol percentage and you don’t even notice that fact. This one was full of body and character and didn’t need 6% + ABV to do so!

650mL bottle poured an amber color with big white head settling down to some fine lacing. This is a big bold flavored beer considering the low alcohol. A nice balance of malt and hops. I truly enjoyed this beer from start to finish. Very nice.

Hazy amber color. The aroma is hoppy and fruity, with toffee and a touch of vanilla. The mouthfeel is too dry, with reasonably toffee and toasted malt flavor; better than most beers with similar low gravity.
A good one.

6oz sample at CAMRA Spring Sessional. Pours a cloudy yellow with thin white head. Aroma of citrus hops, some malt. Very good taste, sharp lemony hops, slight malt. Tastes like a much higher % beer. Solid.
