Hwgga Brew 'Lover's Leap' Best Bitter
Lover's leaps are described as "of varying height, usually isolated, with the risk of a fatal fall and the possibility of a deliberate jump." There is a picturesque riverside "Lover's Leap" here in Llandrindod Wells where bitter lovers (not lovers of Bitter) might leap to their death.
The bitterness in our bitter beer comes from Slovenian Bobek hops which give a slightly more piney addition to the traditional zest and pepperiness of English hops. The beer pours a clear amber gold with a strong, frothy white head. It refreshes on the way down leaving a lingering hoppy bitterness and a touch of coffee and bitter chocolate from the discrete addition of black malt.
The main ingredient, Maris Otter pale malt offers a light sweetness that balances against those big bitter characters.
