Brigstow is an easy drinking, tawny best bitter. The colour and malty taste come from the crystal and cara malts added to the mash. We then use all English hops in the copper - Challenger for bitterness, followed by a huge amount of Fuggles & East Kent Goldings for loads of flavour and aroma.

Hazy amber beer, little pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and dry and minerally. Mild toffee malt, not that sweet and quite dry. Insipid hops watery citrus. Dry finish. I could go to 500 UK brewers and get a beer like this. Really don’t need one from Arbor, you are better than this!

Gravity cask at the Bree Louise, London. Pours clear gold with a small - but present! - white head. (It is rare to see head on a gravity pour at this pub!) Biscuity malt aroma with some delicate citrus and hay. Light to medium sweet flavor, bread, toast, doughy malts, light grass, leaves and citrus. Light bodied with fine, tickling carbonation. Clean finish, some doughy malt sugars, light bitterness. Ticks all the boxes, this one.
