Hoppy Amber Bitter
We don’t like the word ‘ordinary’ except when it is part of the word ‘extraordinary’. This may be our standard best bitter but we want it to be a vibrant marker, pointing the way to full-flavoured ales. Nova Foresta is a refreshing amber bitter packed with a generous amount of spicy and fruity English hops to balance the delicious maltiness. Take a walk on the vibrant forest path for a new taste experience.
