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.

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 isnít a legacy of a full-frontal hop attack, rather a sage like herbal lingering on the palate. Excellent session ale.
