Brightside The Beast


Brewed by Brightside
Radcliffe, England
Style: Bitter | Ratings: 3 | Alcohol: 3.8%
Cask; Occasional.
The name inspired by a large stray cat who seems to us to be a bit of a wolf in sheepís clothing. Once spotted holding down a rival with one paw whilst batting him with the other, he acts like a lion in a moggís body! So he lends his name to a beer that has a high opinion of itself, despite itís relatively low alcohol.
A dark amber bitter at 3.8%. Brewed with the intention of getting a lot of flavour out of a sub 4% beer.
The result is a malty beer for its strength, with a bitterness level to keep it balanced. Good body and subtle English hops, with just a light, fresh American hop finish.
A beer that punches above itís weight in terms of body to strength ratio.
