Cask; Regular. Aka Jeffrey Hudson Bitter. Also available bottled @ 4.2% abv.
A golden beer whose aroma is dominated by hops that give characteristic citrus notes. Hops and fruit on the palate are balanced by malt and a bitter base. Dry hoppy finish with soft fruit flavors. A nationally respected ale, winner of numerous awards, JHB is a blond baby packed with flavour & perfect for those long sessions as well as a quick pint at lunchtime. This popular beer was crowned Champion beer of britain in the bitter category in 2001 and 1999.

AshtonMcCobb (2117) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 9, 2014
On tap at the Guildford Arms. Appearance - golden with a slight haze. Decent head. Nose - citrus but predominantly meadow flowers. Maybe even a hint of custard. Taste - more flowers and there’s a lovely tangy hop resin thing going on. I think this is where the custard note came from. Palate - light to medium bodied. Something on the end has not sorted itself out. Not as fresh as I’d hoped. Overall - interesting and good but more interesting than good.

On tap @ the Stockbridge Tap. Pours golden and fairly bright with a thin head. The nose is mostly of malt and lemon. The taste has grapefruit lemon pith and creamy malt. The palate is light to medium bodied with a clean finish. Good ale isn’t it a Pale?

Cask, Kazimier Garden, Liverpool. Golden looks with a decent white head. Fragrant hop and citrus in all departments and plenty of flavour here for the strength. Dry bitter finish. Very downable and great session fodder.
