English-style Bitter brewed with Maris Otter and a touch of British light crystal. We hopped this one in the kettle with Target and East Kent Goldings, then threw a bunch of Olicana—a newer English hop prized for its uncharacteristically fruity aroma and flavor profile—into the whirlpool.
As much as we at The Drowned Lands love pushing the boundaries with new-age ingredients and flavor profiles, we also have a deep admiration for tradition, and the styles of beer that influenced American Beer in the first place. This deep-orange Summer Bitter was brewed to be refreshing, delicious, and effortlessly drinkable.
We’re tasting medium-rare toast, marmalade-slathered biscuits, freshly foraged countryside blackberries, English Breakfast tea, and a silver platter of recently plucked under-ripe peaches.
