4.8% ABV, Bottle
Appearance: A reddish gold color, with little to no head.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Brit’s Best is technically an ESB, but bitter is the last thing I think of when drinking this brew. With some bready-like qualities, malts and just a hint of fruit sweetness, this brew is very drinkable — the only hint of bitterness occurs at the end. Overall this is a pretty good cold-weather brew, as it gives you a warmth while sipping it.
