Premium Bitter. Common Sense series.

Our Story
Size can often be deceptive and this is double the case for this robust and vigorous beer Champion of the slaves and hero of the abused, out of the dirt rose a mighty man. Fighting a war against an empire with little chance of success Maximus ultimately failed in his attempt. Maximus fought to keep the hopes of his people alive and he did this out of honor.

He fought with the sword in the arena, now you have the choice to sit in the stands idly watching or to join him in this war. The Mighty Maximus might look weak but it has a large heart, a vigor that cannot be contained. This is the impetus that will topple thrones.

Tasting Notes
Much like an ESB the Premium Bitter is a style from England and has many subdued and subtle tones of maltiness and hop aroma associated with those styles. However, our version of this style has an amped up bitterness that sets it apart from other bitters. Mighty Maximus has a rounded malt aroma with a bready, roasty smell and slight caramel sweetness. This vigorous session beer has a robust full-bodied mouth feel tasting of toffee and toasty malt character. The elevated bitterness at the finish completes this beer leaving the taste bigger than perceived.
