In this video, I brewed an English pub beer: the Best Bitter. Overall this beer was surprisingly easy to brew, and came out wonderfully. This is a rare blend of amazing flavor and character all in a low-ABV package. This beer has exceptionally high drinkability and a refreshing quality! This was my first time trying a classic English bitter and I will definitely be returning to the style as it quickly became one of my favorites.
