Standard/Ordinary Bitter

Description:

Authentic English session bitter which is easy to make, easy to drink and has a good well balanced taste. The combination of Progress and WGV hops provides the bitter yet rounded profile which is typical of this style. You can use Fuggles and Goldings or Challenger and Goldings or any other good combination of English hops. The Whitbread ale yeast is perfect and the high floculation rate provides a good clear ale. Pours amber with a fruity, malt taste with a dry, bitter finish.
