Now this is a rather good Bitter.
Sambrook’s Junction is a very nice deep amber with a thin trace of bubbles for a head and a smell that’s honey and bruised apples.
And that’s where the flavours start, with lots of apples, toffee, shortbread and raisins.
Then there are spicy pears and black pepper, a little tamarind and some peach and apricot.
After all this the hops aren’t huge but they’re definitely there and provide lots of orange rind, fence posts, lawn clippings and grapefruit pith.
Eventually you get to the end where there’s softly honey rich with a good nettle sharpness that least a lasting finish.
