Named after the area of London where Fuller's is based, Chiswick Bitter is brewed using Pale ale and Crystal Malts with Northdown and Challenger hops. Target is used as a bittering hop and then this is late dry hopped with Goldings. In 1999, Fuller's made improvements to this beer’s brewing process.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 20/10/2012
(best before 23-Feb-13) Clear, burnished coppery amber with virtually no head.
Subdued nose with earthy grassy hay, nettles and caramel malt. Slightly soapy floral note.
Moderately bitter session ale with tart citrus notes and floral hops.
Hop bitterness more obvious on the finish with lingering citrus zest oils. All this really lacks is some punch but its low alcohol content could also be its appeal.
