‘Amerikaans is a light amber coloured bitter, with an American touch.’
English bitters are the quintessential session beer - with flavour. Characterised by a mild malt flavour and soft bitterness from Czech hops,they are made for drinking in the pub environment; and drinking a few.
The American touch comes in the form of dry hopping with US hops Columbus and Amarillo, adding a fruity and floral aroma, with light citrus and grassy flavours.
The beer has been renamed Licht & Lustig, with the brewery wanting to keep the naming trend consistent through their range.
So this is the last Amerikaans label we’ll see. But we’ll have the beer back, with its new label, on our next container.
