BURLEIGH BREWING MY WIFE’S BITTER

Burleigh Brewing My Wife's Bitter. It’s hard not to chuckle when you see this beer on the shelf.

It was first created as a limited release by the experimental department of Burleigh brewing, ‘A Bit on the Side’. Due to its popularity it is now part of their permanent range.

No prizes for guessing this is an Engish Bitter style brew. It utilises genuine English malt, hops and yeast. The malt bill includes crystal and chocolate malt while on the hop front are Fuggles and East Kent Goldings.

I’ve tried this in the past but not recently enough to remember much about it. So I decided to give it another go when a barman recommended it.

 Medium body, relatively low carbonation with a soft mouthfeel. Predominately a caramel malt flavour with a moderately crisp finish. It’s relatively sweet and not bitter enough for my palate.

Perhaps his wife has mellowed with age?

 

5/10
