Notes/Commercial Description:
Bitto Honey is our flagship Honey Amber ale. The beer was named after a friend of the brewer, Don Bitto, who had recently finished med school and was moving to Denver to start his career and the long road to paying off student loans. His brother Tim had a party and invited Prism’s founder and asked him to brew some beer when he was still a home brewer. The beer was such a hit at this party, we decided to start Prism Brewing Company.

Brewed with a special blend of honey from a Chester county apiary, this well balanced ale has a great malt/honey backbone to blend with the citrus hops. Coming in at 67 IBU’s, we balance the use of hops across the spectrum of bittering, flavoring, and aroma profiles. This provides you with the bitterness without killing your tongue and allows you to experience the true beauty of hops, their flavor and aroma; just with honey drizzled over them!

Pours a hazy orange-ish to amber color with a tan head. In the aroma, orange citrus hops. In the taste, dry citrus and a touch of honey sweetness. Quite malty, but the hops still override that. A small hop bitterness and medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dry pine hop aftertaste. Nice hop presence and interesting with the small hint of honey mixed in.

Serving type: on-tap

A: Coppery orange pour produces a monstrous 3 inch beige head that had a shrooming cap. Incredible head retention is lengthy in stay with a moderate rise of carbonation along the glass edge. There seems to be sprinkled cinnamon both on top and mixed in to the head. Covering is fully lasting while there is a generous amount of chunky lace adhering to the vessel walls.

S: Aroma of fresh wet citrus and honey. Surprising amount of fresh aromatic hoppiness with some sugar coated grapefruit and saffron.

T: Loads of freshly squeezed citrus and lemon lime. Saffron, sweet upfront, wet and juicy citrusy hoppiness that is dripping wet turning to a bittering of pine and citronella. Some dry lemon with some peppery herbaceous hints. Pine-scotch alcohol from the 6.7% abv with some complimentary alcohol notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and woodsy additions.

M: Honey malt depth to the mouthful, decent rate of carbonation with a good deal of bittering on the tongue.

O: Overall had an aroma that was fresh and wet with a good bite of honey and hop bitterness mixed together. Nice aromatic appeal, flavor was decent, good honey balance without being overdone and delivered on the bitterness factor. would go single here at first.
