ABV 6%. English Electric Lightning will celebrate not only the English Special Bitter style, but also one of the truly magnificent feats of British Engineering. The English Electric Lightning was our very own Mach 2 Cold War Interceptor which still even in 2012 holds many time to altitude records.
A Classic English Special Bitter Style using Maris Otter Pale, Crystal & Amber Malt. Half of this is provided by late hops. The Hops used are Challenger & Pioneer.
A burnished orange colour like a Lightning engine on reheat. This beer has a pleasant citrus/fruity & floral hop aroma. A rich biscuity malt flavour with a combination of flavours from the hops. Hints of seville orange, citrus and fruitcake. SRM 9, IBU41
