I have to declare an interest right from the start as I designed the label for this home brewed Best Bitter.
Last Day Of The Miners’ Strike was made to celebrate the death of a certain someone, and pours a rich amber with a smell of fruits on an well used wooden chopping board.
The malting tastes rather like walnut biscuits topped with toffee and peanut brittle.
There are plenty of hops too.
They’re lemon pith dry, sharp with fresh herbal leaves and a bunch of hedgerow twigs.
All this and a finish that’s honey sweet but still long, dry and as bitter as you might feel looking at the bottle.
Yet more great home brewing from Jimmy.
