A classic best bitter to suit the Bristol palate. Based on a Sixties recipe using all-British malt and hops.
It is temptingly copper in colour with a malty aroma and is notably well balanced with malt and biscuity tones, polished off by a satisfyingly bitter finish.
This was the brewery owner’s first new recipe; it harks back to his childhood. (Some say he’s never left it!) Read more about the story of Bristol Best here
