COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mug Bitter is a top fermented, amber-coloured beer of 5% ABY, made from pale malt and Caramalt 20 and richly hopped with Hallertau, Goldings and Challenger hops. The beer's character is best expressed in the old saying: "Geen smaeck zo soet als 't Zeeuwse Bitter doet" (Nothing tastes as sweet as the Bitter from Zeeland). Its hoppy and fruity aroma and well-balanced bittersweet flavour places this beer in a league of its own! Mug Bitter ... Much Better!

A nice hoppy and fresh beer! A sharp taste with a smooth aftertaste. A great nose and a beautiful blond color.

0,33l fles bij bryanvdv. Goudgeel troebel bier met prachtig fijn schuim dat extreem lang blijft staan. In de geur gist en hoptonen. In de smaak is een klein zoetje terug te vinden van het suiker. Daarnaast veel hopbitter, droger dan veel andere hopbiertjes. Flinke smaaksensatie helemaal gezien het ABV
