COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A refreshing beer of real flavour - distinctively hoppy and dry with malt aromas. Delicious served cool. Adnams brewery has stood in the heart of Southwold for over six hundred years and "Southwold Jack" appears on our beer labels. He continues to guard over our longest-serving beer brewed here in Southwold on the Suffolk coast -The Bitter. Bitter goes well with roast meats and fish cooked in batter as the clean bitterness cuts through the slightly fatty notes and hence keeps the palate refreshed. Our Bitter also makes a good aperitif. Available (pasteurised) in 500ml bottles and 500ml cans.

500 ml bottle. Pours amber with a medium lasting white head. Aroma is of grassy hops, caramel malt, and ripe fruit. Body is medium and tangy. Earthy hops followed by caramel malt and some fruit on the palate. Finish is long and earthy. I can’t say I enjoyed this brew.

Bottle from Capone’s. Pours turbid Carolina mud brown with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is bitter hops, caramel malt, tannins. Tastes dry, tannic, ESB-ish but with not as much sweetenss as that style, and with finishing tea-like buttering hops. Meh.

McWorta (1051) - LUXEMBOURG - NOV 11, 2012
Amber colour with tiny white head. Noses of heavy hops. Slick in texture light oily, medium body and rather dry/bitter. Medium body. Bitter and some sweet notes on the palate. Finish is rather quick, leaves some hints on the palate, could be longer and forestanding to my liking.
