COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.
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.

4.2% ABV. Blonde Beer. Light frothy head that is shortlived. Nose is light, beery (thanks to the wheat) and carbonated. Almost likely putting our nose to sparkling lemonade. Full-bodied ale with wheat and barley showing through. It has nice bright moments where the wheaty part of it’s pedigree peeks through, not unlike a nice witbier. The bitter hops dominate on the front end of the palate and bow out politely to leave the palate clean, uncluttered and ready for another mouthful of this refreshing ale. This is not a confusing or darkly complex ale, it has no airs about it, giving you it’s clean frank flavors and then stepping aside to quietly allow you to make up your mind. Quite the well thought out experience. Kudos to the fine folks at Oakham for putting something so approachably affable. Very nice indeed.

suurjuust (1053) - ESTONIA - SEP 2, 2014
Shared by martjoobolut, thanks! Clear golden beer, small white head, filmy retention. Both the nose and the flavor have biscuity malt, mild caramel hints, grapefruit. Decent bitterness in the finish. This bottle is showing it’s age, could use a rerate.

martjoobolut (705) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 2, 2014
0,5L bottle, BB 19.09.2014. Pours clear golden with off-white head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is fruity, sweet and dry hoppy bitter. Flavor is sweet & bitter, fruits, and malt. Finish is dry bitter. Overall: ok brew, I guess fresher sample would be a lot better.

Cask. Clear yellow with a medium sized good lacing white head. Soap, candy, grain, hay, light dry flowers in the finish. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, light/medium sweet and bitter. Long light dry and bitter finish. Pretty good balance and lots to offer for the low abv.
