COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available in 275ml and 500ml bottles, as well as on draught (Sussex Best Bitter).

A ’Blue Label’ traditionally denotes a well hopped beer. Blue Label is an award winning ale in its own right, derived from our Sussex Best Bitter.

A blend of four different ’aroma’ hop varieties imparts a delicate bitterness which is balanced by the residual sweetness of malt sugars.

Contains: Barley

AshtonMcCobb (3908) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 2, 2015
Bottle from Harvey’s online shop. Appearance - deep amber and clear, almost a red glow. Nice head. Nose - light apple or grape, muesli. Taste - apple and dry biscuits. Going into a orange tang on the finish. Palate - light bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly tangy finish Overall - I think this is decent given the low ABV.

Scopey (8999) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2014
Bottle from Middle Farm. It pours clear amber with a medium white head. The nose is toasty, grain, oatcakes, cereal and light caramel. The taste is toasty, light bitterness, lemon zest, cereal and dull wood with a short, dry finish. Light body, average carbonation and slightly watery mouth-feel. Light and simple. Not whole lot going on, but drinkable enough.

frale (3) - Middlesbrough, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2014 does not count
One of my favourite beers and a real taste of home. I have to buy it online from the brewery shop, which is a very good service. Fairly full bodied but lightly hopped, very refreshing, and being lower in alcohol than lots of beers today doesn’t make me fall over!

mt_hall (158) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2012
Bottled. Pours a clear, mid-amber colour with a small off-white head of large bubbles. A light resin aroma of hops, with a touch of malt to balance. Flavours are clean but fairly subtle; hops again but with a balanced finish. A good session beer.
