Our first beer and we have high hopes that one day our pump clip will become as recognisable around Windsor as the Guard’s bearskin hats that the design it is based upon. Guardsman Best Bitter is a copper-coloured session strength ale with a tangy taste, smoothed by oak conditioning and a really fresh hop. It is brewed with premium Maris Otter pale malt and a blend of Pilgrim, Styrian Golding and Fuggles hops.

Clear amber beer, little white head. Crisp palate. Smooth malt, a little sweet. Very well balanced with vibrant fresh orange mild citrus hops, that impart a reasonable bitterness. Finishes smooth and a little fruity. Mildly bitter aftertaste. Somehow the ubiquitous 4.2% English Bitter has been made in to a decent beer!

Papsoe (25059) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 1, 2011
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of madmitch76. Pours a clear amber with a small off-white head. Caramellish nose. Light body, heavy caramel and a little nuts. Ends dry with a little hops. Pleasant alright. 011211
