This is superb. Wonderful bitter notes and a great finish. The colour is the perfect copper of a real British best bitter and the hopping is spot on. The last thing you want in a best bitter is for it to scream hops at you – and this doesn’t.
I was having this with dinner – and it went beautifully with a toad-in-the-hole – but it would work equally well as a session bitter. If you’re in the Hertfordshire area, seek out a McMullen’s pub and get yourself a pint of AK. You won’t regret it.
