COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available (pasteurised) in 500ml bottles and 500ml cans.
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.

Pours Amber in color. Little head. Light citrus, bread, caramel aromas. Taste is a little skunky which could be the bottle I got. It’s average, I prefer fullers esb over this.

ContemplateBeer (1548) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Aroma: Light malt character overall- slight cider and caramel with a dose of wood and a leafy quality. Kinda reminds me a bit of Rooibos tea, in a good way. Appearance: Still copper/amber body with a thin, bubbly coating of tan head. Flavor: Light caramel and a touch of walnuts; lemony, leafy hop quality takes over more toward the finish with a surprisingly present bitterness. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, flat carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: A nice bottled bitter.

Belle couleur ambrée; arômes et goût intéressants mais très légers; une bonne bière

Orange amber appearance with medium head. Citrus caramel aroma, medium sweetness, decent bitterness, overall rounded. Good Bitter style beer.

Senap (371) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 17, 2014
Lätt men ändå relativt smakrik. Ingen efterbeska, svag röknyans. På det hela taget en hyfsad öl i klassen.

BVery (6559) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Bottle. Slightly murky orange amber pour with a smaller but persistent head. Earthy, grassy, and bready elements in this. Doesn’t finish terribly dry. Okay.

JM82 (25) - SPAIN - JAN 11, 2014
lata de 50 cl. De color rojizo oscuro, la espuma deja marcado el vaso. Aromas a pan, malta tostada y un ligero toque a hierba fresca. En boca aparece la amargura de los lúpulos con un toque floral y el dulzor del albaricoque, que rápidamente se disipa. una bitter compensada, sin aires de grandeza.

javiercrasher (167) - Granada, SPAIN - JAN 10, 2014
@Can Color cobrizo, brillante, con abundante espuma clara que aunque desaparece deja manchadas las paredes del vaso. Olor a malta tostada. Poco cuerpo y buena carbonatación. En boca maltosa y amarga con final seco. Como su publicidad indica es para beberla fresca (en términos de un inglés claro) ya que al calentarse se hace más difícil de beber. Cerveza bitter bastante normalita, pero que compite en precio y calidad con la London Pride o cualquiera de las inglesas que se pueden encontrar en las grandes superficies. Nuestra Dougalls Leyenda por ejemplo se la lleva de calle. Supongo que en cask y sin pasteurizar ganara algo.

Mørk brunrød farge med flott høyt skum som ligger langs glassveggen. Lukter karamell, appelsin,grapefrukt og noe humle. Ikke veldig fyldig og smaker bra bittert, men også noe metallisk i smak og ettersmak. Overall, helt ok..

Bottle at home, cheers to JF, 26/12/13 (closing stages of) . Clear copper amber with a well appointed off white head. Nose is bready malts, light floral, orange notes, grass. Taste comprises light toffee, fruit notes, straw, bready malts. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry bitterings in the last hurrah! Ok bitter.
