Sydney Brewery Pittwater Bitter

Given events of the 1700s, Sydney will forevermore have a connection with England. It therefore makes some sense that the Sydney Brewery should have a beer in its range which has a nod to that connection and they’ve opted to do so with the Pittwater Bitter, their take on the classic Extra Special Bitter style.

Upon first introduction you’re met with aromas of caramel and dried fruits before the first sip takes you away on a wave of earthy hop character – courtesy of the traditional Styrian and East Kent Golding hops – and a most pleasant malt sweetness that leads into quite a dry finish. At 5.5% ABV it’s all rather moreish and a finely balanced alternative to the New World hop-focused beers that have become so ubiquitous.
