Hedgerow Bitter | Pretty Things Beer & Ale Project
Pretty Things Beer & Ale Project
Massachusetts, United States
Style: Extra Special / Strong Bitter (ESB)
Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.40%
Notes / Commercial Description:
“Hops are bitter weeds of spite, That blunt the sugars, try to bite…”
We wanted a beer that was dry and bitter, and that’s what we got. 5.4% abv with all UK grown hedgerow variety hops: Pioneer, Boadicea and Sovereign. No American hops are used in the making of this beer.
You know what? If you think you like hoppy beers, this might surprise you. It’s a different kind of bitterness to US hops. These hops are leafy weeds, very bitter and less aromatic. The overall impression left is a slightly-roasty, special bitter with an aggressive and quite “wild” bitterness with a substantial dryness that lends to its drinkability. A pint glass beer, good for dry throats after long days of work.
