Best

English Bitter

Hobsons BreweryLocationEngland3.8% ABV
from £45.50

The very first of the Hobsons deliveries in 1993 and still a firm favourite. Best has lived up to its name and won many awards over the years including CAMRA Champion Beer of Britain, overall Bronze medalist in 1997 and CAMRA West Midlands Champion Bitter in 2012. 

The pale brown to amber medium bodied beer has a strong hop character. It's a bitter but with unconventional warm tones of malt that lingers on the palette, the complex malty flavours gives richness, balanced by the clean hoppy finish. A good session bitter brewed with local British hops picked from the farm seven miles down the road in Worcestershire - Fuggles, Goldings, Challenger and Progress.

"[So just what did Hobson’s learn from their collaborations with BBNos?] Stewed prunes, sultanas & twigs on the nose; taste is twiggy early boil fuggles, (think war-wax astringency) atop stewed prunes & figs; then bitter (hazel)nutty astringency & grass."
