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

Erzengel (7387) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 4, 2015
Many thanks to Eike! Smooth malty beginning. Fresh in body with a nice intense bitterness. Round and fresh, smooth and malty, not too deep but very round and fresh! Nice and easy to drink stuff!

sebletitje (9033) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2015
50cl bottle split in two, thanks Pierre T. Ambrée, col blanc-cassé. Arôme au bouquet malté plaisant laissant un agréable côté biscuité et caramel. Le tout est accompagné par un houblonné fleuri assez dominant. Palais est léger, malté avec encore une pointe de biscuité très plaisant, amertume reste fine et noble anglaise. Fleuri et citronné rappelant un EKG. Amertume est prenante sans être trop devant.

AshtonMcCobb (5036) - 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 (11958) - 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.

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!
