COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Hops of Brixton is a classic British-style extra special bitter (ESB). It starts with British Maris Otter malt for a toasty backbone thats accented with light and dark British caramel malts, adding distinctive toffee notes. Flaked barley adds a gentle silkiness to the mouthfeel. Hops from the East Kent region of England create a floral and earthy hop profile to perfectly balance the malt. Londons calling!

I had this on tap at Beachwood in Long Beach. I really enjoyed this beer. The caramel maltiness plays well with the hop flavors and, all in all, I think this is very well crafted.

BlackHaddock (7038) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2017
7th Feb 2017: on a flight at the Long Beach brewery. Amber pour, beige head that lasted. Decent ESB with a malt presence that overpowered the hop content, toffee and caramel esters in the aroma and flavour. Becomes a little more bitter towards the end of each sip.

On tap at their place in Long Beach. Pours a copper amber with a thin off white head. Aroma is slight malt and slight caramel. Flavor follows with a bit more bitterness than most ESBs. But overall, a nice, drinkable beer.
