Election Special Bitter

Anybody got some thoughts for a polling day recipe for an ESB?

I'd rather have a bottle in front of me, than a frontal lobotomy :D

Hmmm... The economy is a strong theme so I'll suggest Bullion hops...

Actually there's a bit of a Hoohah in Thanet I believe? So maybe some East Kent Golding too?

Something to mark the Labour result in Scotland? Maybe "Northdown"? ;)

My glass is half full (of ESB) anticipating the same beer that we have had for the last 5 years. Nicely matured, consistent, slightly sweet with a bitter edge, cleared nicely, brewed with intent, repeatable, smooth carbonation, excellent head, satisfying to the end, need another term errr pint.

Looks like you might be right if the pre-boil gravity (erm... exit poll) is to be believed.
