RATINGS: 5   MEAN: 3.28/5.0   WEIGHTED AVG: 2.96/5   EST. CALORIES: 135   ABV: 4.5%
Bottle Conditioned; Special - brewed once a year but recipe may change from year to year.
NOTE: This beer is brewed with Bobek hops. The recipe remained the same, using Hallertauer Brewer’s Gold hops, for the for the first three years (to 2009). Subsequent years have used a different recipe. PLEASE make sure you note the year and refer to it in your reviews.

For the last 3 years I have stuck the same recipe because it has been popular and I didn’t want to upset anyone. This year I have changed it. Not because I want to upset people but because the Hallertauer Brewer’s Gold which are key to SBR’s flavour are a bit crap (technical brewing term) this year. This (last) year’s SBR is a very selfish beer because I have opted to use only my favourite hop. "Which is your favourite hop Stuart?" I hear you say. She is Bobek, a fragrant and mild Slovenian with a delicate and diminutive cone.

planky84 (2866) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2011
Bottle from Bitter Experience, Bromley. Orange/amber pour with an off-white head. Bitter citrus nose. A bit soapy. Odd. Fruity-citrus flavour, tangerine. Fruity-bitter finish. Not bad.

Bottle in London. 2010 label. Pours light amber with a foamy creamy 4 finger off-white head. Aroma of roast caramel and musty fruity hop. Flavor same with a touch of nuttiness. It develops some decent bitter in the fruity finish.

Bottle 500ml. @ home.

Clear medium to light dark amber color with a average, frothy and speaking, good lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, caramel, moderate to light heavy hoppy, orange - citrus, fruity, flowers. Flavor is moderate to light light heavy sweet and bitter with a long to average duration, light salty. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation look soft to flat, but in mouth it is lively.
