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.
Challenger and American Mount Hood hops.

500ml bottle. Pours cloudy gold with very little head. Mild aroma hides very heavy hops with an immediate sourness that gives way to a long bitter finish. Huge amounts of citrus with some tropical fruit. Dry, refreshing and hugely enjoyable.

J’ai adoré , une ale pas trop lourde, corps moyen , finale très houblonnée mais pas trop amère pour autant.

Light summery drink, brief thin head. Initial fizz holds with a few bubbles. Hoppy light flavour very drinkable.

Solid session ale. Initially quite sweet, hints of ripe pear before delivering some subtle bitterness. Decent lunchtime bitter. Had it as takeaway cask from Noble Green in Hampton Hill, and it was a little flat.

Klar lys gyllen farve med lyst skum som raskt forsvinner. Lukt av malt, sitrus og gress. Smak av malt, sitrus og humle. Fruktig og noe bittersøt avslutning. Flaske 4.2%. Det Gode Brygg.

Pint at the Schooner Gateshead. Pale gold with a white head. Floral aroma, Sweet and fruity flavour. Pleasant, but slightly underwhelming.
