Wow. Very close to being the perfect cask bitter. Dark, malty, complex and satisfyingly thick without being cloying, yet very rrefreshing and all at 3.8%! A stunning beer.

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2014 You know what you’re getting with this classic best bitter. Nice flavours of toasty malt balanced with a touch of spice from the hops. Refreshing and drinkable, but ultimately a bit dull.
