COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wee Bairn Bitter is named for my daughter Mila. It is brewed in the English tradition as a Session Bitter. Highly drinkable, a few pints can be enjoyed with friends whilst maintaining your wits! Wee Bairn is well balanced with toffee and toasted malt flavours married with a smooth bitterness. Citrus and fruity notes develop from late and dry hopping.

The head is robust. The body red-orange-brown. It smells hoppy, sweet, fruity, bit flowery. The taste is fruity, bitter, hoparomatoic, flowery, balanced, aromatic.

Rubyish amber in colour with a head of creamy white bubbles with a greenish hop tinge. Pacific Northwest hop character initially, pine needles, sprcue and then almost crystal malt underneath. Not as full bodied as its higher alcohol siblings but still with good hoppy bitterness and herbal flavours. Malt character is there too along with a return to hop citrus - grapefruit and tangerine. The finish isn’t a legacy of a full-frontal hop attack, rather a sage like herbal lingering on the palate. Excellent session ale.
