Although in continental Europe hops were being used in beer by 1000 AD they had not made it to the UK yet. British brewers (mostly monks) relied on the local herbs to achieve similar effects. Bog myrtle was a common choice for adding bitterness and lemon balm &elderberries were fragrant enough to addsome pleasant flavours and aromas.
Medieval - 1000 AD Ingredients - bog myrtle, lemon balm & elderberries

[tap at Cloisters Bar, Edinburgh] Pours extremely flat, and feels a bit listless all-round. However, there’s a lot of floral elements coming through in this one – elderflower and bog myrtle are a classic combination. Needed a bit more carbonation, though [24042014]
