Black Rock New Zealand Company Bitter is a rich full-bodied, brown beer for beer drinkers who like the strong taste of a real beer. The British created the New Zealand Company in 1839 to settle the colony. This beer is similar to an English Best Bitter. This stronger-tasting beer is both satisfying and thirst-quenching with full-bodied malt character from the Crystal and Black specialty malts balanced with a moderate bitterness . Brew with 1kg Black Rock Liquid Brewing Sugar (or 1kg other sugar) for a cleaner finish. For more body, colour and malt flavour use 1.7kg Black Rock Light or Amber unhopped malt extract instead of sugar.
