A straw-coloured bitter which initially seems sweet, but a complex dry, hoppy taste soon predominates. Probably the best example of the traditional Black Country style of bitter.

hohops (953) - Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2016
Appearance- hazy golden, lots of bubbles rising, a thick white head which lasts well. Looks the part. Aroma- caramel malt, soft fruity hops, lemon and orange hints, honey, cereal. Taste- orange and piney hop hints, biscuity sweet malty base, juicy mouthfeel, cereal, crisp hops, short finish. Everything youd want from a bitter.
