Father Hooks Best Bitter is similar in nature to the Hook Norton Brewery's famous Old Hooky. It has a big malty body with wonderful orange marmalade character, the malts being perfectly balanced with hop bitterness. It has an ABV of 4.5% and is an almost luminous amber ale with a white head. It has a complex aroma profile with slight fruit, vanilla and malt goodness to it.

  • Size: 40 pint
  • Bitterness: 3.5 (0-Least to 5-most bitter)
  • ABV: 4.5

The UK is steeped in brewing history and is home to its own unique style of beer that is now imitated the world over. Along with the original powerhouses of commercial brewing there has been a recent increase in the number of fantastic micro-breweries that are now carrying the torch of creative brewing. Festival Premium Ale kits pay homage to some great beers that in our opinion are truly outstanding examples of what the UK has to offer.
