A classic amber bitter with the full flavour of Maris Otter barley and citrus notes of Sovereign hops. A very quaffable well-balanced ale using locally sourced malt and named after the almost lost tradition of double drop brewing.

Grumbo (4731) - Ipswich, Suffolk, - AUG 11, 2017
Cask at the Great British Beer Festival 2017. Pours copper brown with a small off-white head. Aroma of malt, treacle, fruit, veg and citrus. Moderate sweetness and bitterness. Leigh to medium body, oily texture, soft to flat carbonation.

From lokal shop in Romsey. Bitter klasyczny, lekko miedziana barwa, smakowo chmielnie, nieco karmelu, skorka od zytniego chleba, minimalna piana jak przystalo na Bittera. Delikatne, nisko alkoholowy bitter, nie rozczarowal ale i szalu tez nie bylo

Cask at PoW, Farnborough. Malty aroma, tinged with boiled veg. Light brown. Thin bubbly white head. Sweet and malty. The latter gains in strength. Sour edge. Develops some sweetness. Light and thin. Low key bubbly carbonation and low key finish. Sessionable - in that it's just watery and malty. Borefest.

Poured nice. Nice nutty colour. Unfortunately tasted of apples. Very disappointing

Bottle. Pours a light brown colour with a fluffy white head, aroma is light malt with a hint of grass, the taste is light bitterness with a dry bitter finish.

Pint at the local. Pours somewhat cloudy red-amber with bright white head. Served rather chilled. Aroma of bread, honey and herbs. Light and drinkable.

March, 2016 Forest Home, New Forest. Flacks is fairly common round these parts so I assumed I’d already rated this. It’s a very pleasant session bitter with attractive hops - blackberry, straw, and something similar to Bramling Cross. There’s an interesting medicinal quality which reminds me of Harveys Bitter - perhaps due to the extra activity of the yeast . I could drink this all day long. [3.9]
June, 2017 500ml dark bottle, filtered, from a mixed case bought at the brewery. Gosh I like this. It’s a roasty best bitter with blackberry jam, caramel and French oak. Lots of flavours, al integrated, nothing unbalanced or excessive, drinkable, satisfying, and deeply pleasurable. Give me beers that are all about the malt and the yeast, and I’m happy. This is a solid, consistent product, and is most definitely my kind of thing. [4.1]

Good white frothy head and chestnut colour. Light malts, moderate sweetness and slight fruitcake flavour. Finish is soft and short. Yeast imparts a Greene King type of flavour?

Origin: Bottle. Vessel: Tulip Glass. Supplier: Co-Op (Romsey). Fruity with low carbonation.

Hazelnut colored, light beige head. Aromas of fruits and caramel. Light or almost no body.
