First seen as a limited longneck release from Burleigh back in 2009, the My Wife's Bitter is their take on the classic bitter ales of the UK. Now it's out in 330ml stubbies on a much wider release - and appearing on a fair few taps too. Using English crystal and chocolate malts, traditional English hops (Fuggles and East Kent Goldings) plus an old English yeast, the result is a malt-driven beer that mixes sweet caramels, some nuttiness (particularly in draught form, where we're plumping for hazelnut) and hints of roast malts too. The hop character is gentle and earthy, the bitterness similarly restrained too.
