COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Otter Strong Bitter is een levend, niet gepasteuriseerd, bovengistend bier. Deze Strong Bitter is een klassieke Engelse Ale en gebrouwen uit enkel traditionele grondstoffen. Maris Otter pale ale mout betrekt SNAB bij Warminster Maltings, een vloermouterij in Whiltshire, en is bekend als de beste mout verkrijgbaar. Challenger- en Worcester Goldings hop zorgen voor een uitgebalanceerde bitterheid en de Engelse bovengist voor veel karakter. SNAB brengt met de Otter Strong Bitter een doordrinkbaar, karaktervol bier dat zijn balans vindt tussen mout en hop. Water, Maris Otter Pale- en Kristalmout. Challenger-, Worcester Goldings hop en Engelse bovengist.
