821: Brightside Brewing Co. | Secret Santa

The brewery: "We started trial brewing on a home brewery kit back in early 2009 when the country was in the depths of the recession, which is partly how the name Brightside arose. That and the fact that we also like The Killers!.....These days we’re an established name in Manchester, with a reputation for quality consistency and service. Our beers can be found in many of the free of tie pubs and bars in the city, out towards Crewe and Chester in the South, through the Wirral, and up to Preston in the North (in fact, across much of the UK by way of swapped casks with partner breweries and wholesalers)."

The beer: "Perfect for the colder months, this golden amber coloured ale blends Mandarina Bavaria and Ekuanot hops with a toasty malt bill to create a delicious premium bitter."

Delicious it certainly was - not the usual fruity and/or spicy seasonal offering but 'just' a damn good premium best bitter - as it says. I may have had a second.
