Beechwood Bitter

Served out of a polypin – notes taken from England trip, July 2007 – Cheers Chris!

Pours like a typical English cask, even from the polypin. Bubbles rather than head. Dark brown pour, carbonation very light. Simple brew that has a little nut character which makes it drink a little more like a brown ale than I was expecting. Mouthfeel is simple.

Good malts, sweet up front, with the mild hop character reserved for the finish. Well balanced. A little toffee and acaramel note – not huge.

The name of this beer is taken from the Beech trees that are prominent in the Chiltern area.
