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 come from Slovenian "Bobek" hops which give a slightly piney addition to the traditional zest and pepperiness of English hops.
The beer pours a dark caramel 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.
