Light and refreshing session bitter.
Light gold in colour and distinctively smooth, with citrus fruitiness and a refreshing hoppy finish.
JHB was the first beer brewed when Oakham Ales was founded in September 1993. They’ve nurtured and improved the recipe ever since, dramatically increasing the amount of hops used in line with changing consumer tastes. There were 0.6 lbs of hops per brewery barrel in the original recipe (a huge amount for the time) whilst they now use around 1.5lbs.
