Essex Craft Beer Review: Burntwood Bitter from Mighty Oak

Welcome to the Shed. I am even-star and this is The Beer in Review. Today's Essex craft beer review is for Burntwood Bitter from Mighty Oak.

Share It!

Well it must be about THREE WHOLE WEEKS(!) since I've had a Mighty Oak beer. You know how I always say when there is a new brewery on at the local and that it's exciting? Sometimes it's just as exciting to see a familiar face with a beer from them you haven't had before.

It was cool to see Burntwood on because as long as I have been drinking Mighty Oak beers I have NEVER had Burntwood and Burntwood was the very first beer that Mighty Oak ever made!

This was a classic bitter. Light brown to coppery and completely clear with a little bit of effervescence. It had a toasty malty-ness but also a fresh savoury green hoppy-ness.  Not strictly in between bitter or sweet but more of a savoury umami earthiness like seaweed or cress.

So glad I got to try the first beer from one of my favourite breweries! I enjoyed it very much but strictly for MY taste I prefer some of their other classics like citra infused Kings or freshly fruity session ale Captain Bob. 

The Beer in Review is a blog about beer. Mostly British beer because that is where I live. I post a review every week day. Make sure you check in on Friday which is when I reveal BEER. OF THE. WEEK! You can contact me with comments and questions on twitter or facebook.
