Beer Style: Special/Best/Premium Bitter  (8B)
Recipe Type: all-grain

Special/Best/Premium Bitter
Beer Color


Ugh, I just can't bring myself to like this beer. I've never been a huge fan of most British beers I've tried, and this is the worst of the lot. The hop esters throw me off, reminding me of hefeweizen, another style I dislike. The dryness this yeast caused (1.007) combined with the dryness caused by the corn sugar doesn't leave any sweetness to complement the hops, pummeling you with bitterness.
