COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2013 A very pale blond bitter with a thin and light head. There are clear hoppy aroma but there is not a strong bitterness, there are various subtle flavours to this beer but none seem to enhance the classic bitter style, instead they mellow the flavour and make this a pleasant hoppy session ale.

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.
