Best Bitter

ABV 3.6%, available in Keg & Cask

Mary Ann Best (3.6% ABV) was born and brewed in the Channel Islands. She is a traditional best bitter which has been produced in the islands for more than 130 years.

Brewed using a blend of the finest Maris Otter and Chocolate malts, this dark bitter ale has a pronounced chocolate character. The well-rounded bitterness is perfectly balanced by a floral aroma derived from English Fuggles and goldings hops and drinks fuller than its ABV would suggest.
