Brewer’s Choice (apostrophe added by me) is a decent Best Bitter that pours a nice deep amber and smells of toffee apples and leafy twigs.
There’s a good sticky caramel malt that coats your tongue while black peppercorns pop all around.
Bran flakes create a firm, earthy backbone, and there’s a nice wash of pear juice too.
The hops are softly brittle, a little bramble jelly and some green hedgerow leaves give a gentle sharpness that leads to a comfortable, slightly sweet gloopy finish.
Not bad, but I keep looking at the label and wanting to see an apostrophe on it.
