Best Bitter (Three Boys)

3 boysLustrous coppery amber in colour with a firm collar of creamy white head (on handpull, bless). Aromas dominated by pale malt, golden syrup, self-saucing pudding, rosehip and other deep, sweet floral characters. The flavour is brassy and typically of British bitter, a style I’m particularly prone to loving incidentally. Excellent length and bitterness but with definite malty sweetness. Long finishing. Essentially a perfect session pint.

American Pale Ale (Tuatara)

tuatara american pale aleSpawned by freewheeling Californian hopheads, American Pale Ale is the red-headed stepchild of the classic IPA. Big and extroverted with plenty of bitterness, a great APA shows off some fruit on the nose and the kind of earthy, herbaceous complexity Pinot Noir buffs drone on about when they corner you at a fundraiser. Anyway, we had a thumb through the Tuatara atlas and discovered that kiwis are New World too.
