Uncle Teddy’s Bitter

On tap at The Brick Store, Decatur, GA, USA.
Pint poured with a surprising degree of chill haze and a distinct lack of clarity which worried me. The head was not well formed either, and the lace suffered a little – I was also surprised at the temperature – The Brick Store is usually pretty much spot on with temp, but this seemed too cold. Mid-brown body. Not the best beer i have ever seen in the glass.
Nice malt based bitter with a simple light hop profile lurking underneath and in the finish. A few summer, soft fruits in there too to pull the beer together. A little more tannin/tea character (which has a drying effect) for my taste, but a decent stab at the style.
Delighted by the ABV and the sessionable possibilities, I just wish that we saw more of these in the USA.
