A best bitter, biscuity malt dominates the warm well rounded roasted background, with a punching bitterness.
Southwold Bitter is a beautiful copper-coloured beer, late and dry-hopped with Fuggles for a distinctive, lingering hoppiness. Brewed with the finest East Anglian Pale Ale malt barley, sourced locally to the brewery. We use Fuggles hops which we add late in the boil to preserve the herbal flavours of this traditional English hop. We add more Fuggles to each cask so that the flavour of the hops infuses into the beer.
At 4.5% abv, this Pale Ale has a good assertive pithy bitterness and a malty backbone. It is brewed with a selection of malts: Pale Ale, Rye and Cara. We use Citra, and a blend of other American hop varieties to create some great citrus flavours.
A perfectly balanced session bitter with a light copper colour and gentle citrus aroma.
