AHB English Ordinary Bitter Beer Kit


English Ordinary Bitter

UK Ale Beer Kit

Style: English-Style Ordinary Bitter

ABV: 4.1%

Color: Deep Amber

Despite the name, this is not a bitter-tasting beer. The "ordinary" style is the everyday drinking beer in Great Britain. The word bitter actually refers to the use of hops; in the distant past before hops were commonly used, most beers were sweet. There are stronger, hoppier British ales, such as ESB (Extra Special Bitter) Pale Ale, and IPA (India Pale Ale.) But ordinary bitter is an easy beer to like. Its modest maltiness and modest bitterness, medium body and a lower carbonation level make for easy drinking. This recipe is made from imported British malt, hops, and grains.
