Pale ale brewed with Apollo hops. Special to celebrate 50th Anniversary of 1st Moon landing July 1969.
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.
Classic English Pale Ale malty with a hint of honey and caramel in the aftertaste.
