S.O.B. (Special Old Bitter Ale)

22 oz Bomber, Green’s, Ponce de Leon, Atlanta, GA, USA.

Classic dark brown body with some nice lacing and some good creamy head retention. Mild lacing – good looker.

Excellent bitterness. Nice malts and the bitterness is NOT a hop based one, rather a dry roastiness. Finish with some lingering bitter dry character. Quite a high ABV for the style, but that is not a problem, it’s hidden very well. Drinkability is high, a very nice beer.

Fine example of the style, especially pleasing to be coming from an American brewer. Worth a try.
