COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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.

cirzen (14) - FRANCE - DEC 31, 2014
500ml bottle. Slightly zesty nose, green fruit and something like wet rubber. Initial taste impressions weren’t good, the aftertaste goes a little off, bitterness merging into amyl but half way through the glass it’s softened. Now the orange hops come through. A little resin. An odd but not uninteresting brew, I suspect it needs to be drunk on a hot summer day rather than in the depths of winter to be enjoyed properly.

It is Oakhams, but it is a bitter, so not for me. I am a Citra, Green Devil, Scarlet Macow man.

samuelbuca (2) - Spalding, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2014 does not count
Good tasting beer with a definite citrus aftertaste. The low alcohol makes it a very good session beer

Ragnampiza (667) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - OCT 14, 2014
500 ml bottle from Les Vignerons. Dark golden yellow, pretty clear, with a tiny, non persistent white head. Pretty delicate smell, floral and citrusy hops, a hint of butter, white bread and grass. Very English indeed with an American twist. Pleasent bitterness, slightly soapy, subtle but clean malty backbone. Rather good hoppy aftertaste. Average carbonation, medium body, creamy texture. Easily quaffable and thirst quenching. Pleasent golden ale.
