Brighton Best – ABV 4.0%
This copper-coloured session bitter is packed full of flavour, particularly in the hop character. The aroma is overflowing with apricot and warm orange with a hint of caramel and peach coming through faintly. There’s some caramel and fruit from the malt and very light roast in the initial taste but this rapidly gives way to a dry, straw hoppy and slightly astringent but full flavour. The aftertaste builds and emphasises bitterness and the slightly earthy hops come through even more. If you’re looking for a hoppier bitter which still retains a good balance with the malt, this is the one for you.
