Notes:

feels like I'm in a pub watching the thames river flow by . English bitter was first introduction to beer with flavor thirty years ago. a favorite style for me. a bit hoppy which should fade a bit in the bottle, carbed to 2.0 perfect , crystal clear the two plus weeks at 34 degrees really helped refine this beer . really enjoying this easy drinking brew. would be a five if hops were a bit more balanced . but had em and just cant throw em away.
