Boys Bitter

I’m brewing a new beer today. Its not often that I come up with whole new recipes as I tend to spend my brew days trying to improve the ones I have. I have a bit of a thing for low gravity beers that can still be characterful. Cask Conditioned Real Ale (there! I will use both terms as that seems to be topic on the month on the blogs) tends to allow low gravity beers to shine with out hiding there attributes under high carbonation and low temperatures.
I have come up with a dark copper coloured, hoppy, boys bitter called Southern Star.
