AK

EnglandBrewery: McMullen
Available: Draught
I tried it: A McMullen’s pub

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.
