A Best Bitter brewed in a traditional Sussex style using Maris Otter, Crystal and Chocolate malts with East Kent Golding hops. Typical of Dark Star ales, the Best Bitter relies on the heavy handed addition of aromatic hops late in the boil.

Slightly hazy amber. Biscuity amber malt character. Mellow hop - the least hoppy Dark Star I’ve had probably. Good character w subtle earthiness. Might benefit from a more expressive yeast but it’s a nice beer.
