This, ladies and gentlemen, is a decent bottle of Bitter.
No trumpets sound and no fireworks explode, but Frothingham Best will satisfy your thirst, especially if you like a glass of Bitter.
And I do.
The aroma is nutty, woody and a little bit fruity.
The malts are burned toast, toffee, honey and biscuits all splashed with apple and pear juice and a not unpleasant hint of farmyard hay.
You get lots of country lane hops in here – lots of hedgerow greenery, quite herbal, doused in chamomile tea and lawn clippings.
And the finish is crisp and bitter sweet, leaving you reaching for your next mouthful.
Trumpets sound and fireworks explode.
Yes, this is a decent bottle of Bitter.
