Cask; Regular.
Previously brewed at 3.9%.

The West Country’s favourite beer derives from pure Mendip Spring Water…notably bitter, clean tasting, refreshingly dry and distinctive. Made with 100% best Maris Otter malt (the Rolls Royce of malts), together with a blend of (never divulged) English hop varieties…Butcombe Bitter is a moreish Mendip masterpiece.

Quite a nice pint, local to my new flat. A bit different to the way it tastes down in Bristol but still quite nice.

Cask, Brændt smag, godt humlet, virkelig tør i det. Den brændte smag brænder virkelig igennem (so to speak), den er meget gennemtrængende men ikke på en ubehagelig måde.

Gary (1832) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2015
Cask @ The Tiger . Bridport ; Butcombe sounds like some innuendo for one thing and secondly, it is considered ’good beer’ by the slack jawed troglodytes in piss-ant Dorest ! A craft beer desert . This beer isn’t even easy to drink ,its too gloopy ! I would rather drink Fosters Lager any day than this !

stravale (2723) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - MAR 7, 2015
Cask @ Town Crier, Chester [270115]
Dark amber, clear, dense white head, good lacing
Aroma of twiggy hops, light minerals, soft yeast
Taste of twiggy hops, earthy bitter hops, soft caramel malt, bit flinty, dab of roasted malts, slight fruits underneath, for the style it’s not bad
Palate - Light body, fairly bitter. Finish as main flavour, twiggy earthy hop finish, some cereal.
Overall A ’boring brown bitter’. Not bad but this style not my thing.
