Big Beery Advent Calendar - Beer 3: London Beer Lab Tip Top Citra, 5% (South London)

Each night at 8pm, we'll post a blog about the day's hand-picked beer in our Big Beery Advent Calendar - why we love the brewery, why we've chosen the beer, why we think you'll love it too. Feel free to comment below or have your say on Twitter.

London Beer Lab says: "Tip Top Citra is the product of an APA home brew competition at our home brew club. A young Kiwi saw off stiff competition with this malty homage to Citra. An easy drinking, smooth pale ale with citrusy and tropical fruit notes."

We say: This was one of the first beers we got in from London Beer Lab earlier this year and it was an instant hit with our customers. We’re so impressed with the output of this little south-of-the-river superstar - their Wheat and Black IPAs are also must-drink beers. They may have flown under your radar till now but we think they're definitely one to watch. Expect great things from them in the future.
