Homebrew British Bitter Experimental #4

British Bitter is the beer responsible for my homebrewing.  Falling in love with it when we lived in England, I couldn’t find anything like it when we returned back to the US.  So I decided to start brewing to make beers I couldn’t find.  That said, I’ve rarely brewed it.  This is my 4th time brewing it out of ~170 batches.  But, importantly, this batch is finally very close to what I want!

Malty and full-flavored, with a distinct slightly sweet flavor of the British yeast.  The malt is slightly roasty, and the beer finishes very cleanly, yet bold.  Shocking that it is such a low ABV, but doesn’t taste watery.
