Arkells – 3B

WP_20160713_20_08_45_ProWhat they say: “Originally known as Arkell’s Best Bitter Beer. First brewed in 1910 and affectionately known as BBB or 3B by customers ever since. A copper coloured Ale with a pleasant fruity and malty nose. It has a lingering bittersweet flavour of balanced Maris Otter malt and traditional Fuggles and Golding hops.”

If memory serves this was my first beer from Arkell’s and I quite liked it, although a couple of friends on Facebook clearly didn’t. A bit of a twang but the combination of hops and malt pleased my palate. 4.0% A.B.V
