COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular.
Originally known as "Southwold Bitter", in 2000 became "Bitter", in early 2006 became "The Bitter", in 2008 returned to "Southwold Bitter"
Was sold as "George Ale" for the George Inn in Southwark until 2007.
A classic cask bitter: the choice of a growing number of discerning licensees. Fragrant aromas of finest English hops and malt. Dry but refreshing, with a distinctive lingering bitterness. Appetising and delicious. Adnams bitter is a category champion.

Cask @ The Red Lion, Haddenham, UK Backlog 14 Aug 2004
A beer I have had many a times and will have many more times. A very decent session beer, with a nice hoppy, bitter taste. Nothing too complex, but a solid pint. Something you can trust to be good.

Hbie (133) - Essex, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2004
Cask conditioned many times in Essex and Sufolk. I drink more of this beer than any other as it is in my local. Full flavoured for its gravity, hoppy and bitter with lots of dry hops which helps it keep longer.

rauchbier (3559) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2004
Cask. Amber, thin white head and moderate fine condition. Low maltiness in the nose, some fruity hop notes noticable in the mouth and a low fruitiness in the finish.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2004
Cask. Gorgeous amber colour, spot on mixture of maltiness with delicate fruit aroma, enough head to last. Not too strong so a great pint to enjoy several of through a summers evening.

Cask, The BLackfriars pub, London (and many other pubs). Musty English hops, fairly well balanced malt. Good amber color. Dry finish. Quite good. I look forward to this bitter coming to the States.
