Who said session bitter had to be bland? Generous additions of fuggles and goldings hops means our standard bitter is stuffed with flavour.

3.9% bottle from The Wine Chambers, Tynemouth. Hazy golden coloured with a thin white head of foam. It has an earthy, peppery hop and herbal flavour followed by a smooth fruity and woody finish. Excellent for the low-ish ABV.

rand (1490) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle 500 ml from PS. Amber with a generous foam. Aromas of hops, zest and orange, pleasant fruity but earthy. I find it very typical of the style, with earthy and grassy notes on a delicate malt albeit slightly too light. Hints of tea, jam and biscuit, in brief what advantageously remplace the boring 5 o’clock tea !.

jmgreenuk (7834) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - AUG 18, 2014
Bottle from Bernie’s Off License, Solihull. Poured a clear medium amber with a broken frothy white head. The aroma is grassy hop. The flavour is medium bitter with a grassy, pepper spice hop palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. One of the hoppiest bitters I’ve ever had. It was very tasty and refreshing too.

ManVsBeer (8765) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2013
Darker golden ale with malty undertones. More a true bitter than anything fancy but is only mild in this respect.

RichardGretton (4652) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2012
Bottle. Vibrant cloudy amber beer with a strong head. The aroma is very hopped with some toffee, and the flavour is very bitter with a strong amount of hoppy’ness. Overall very nice well hopped bitter.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2012
Bottled 26/08/12. A copper coloured beer with a massive rocky spongy white head. A head like that from a Britsih BCA fills me with dread, but this is really good. Obviously English ingredients but really hoppy in flavours. Nicely fruity. The nose is really hoppy even from a distance. Orangey fruits and a bit of spiciness in the mouth. A bit of marmalade. Very impressed.

DanielBrown (4381) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2012
Hand pulled at the Post Office Vaults, Birmingham. Clean, refreshing Bitter. Well blended: tobacco, faintly sweet malt and crusty pepper w/ UK hop finish. All round good stuff - the sort of thing that gives UK cask Bitters a god name.

leaparsons (9923) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2012
Bottle. Hazy gold with a thin foam. Aromas are caramel and oranges with yeast and light lemon. Biscuit with earthy, spicy hops. Medicinal with dark honey and some woody, nutty aspects. Flavours are earthy apple with caramel and toffee. Dusty, bready yeast with herbal notes. Hints of chocolate with low nutiness. Dry on the finish. A decent session bitter.

IBeerU (5) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 29, 2012 does not count
Tasted locally in Coventry, pump tapped, served in british pint glass. It’s an amber, low carbonate, moderated bitter and quite light beer.

imdownthepub (13370) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2011
Cask conditioned at The Gatehouse Tavern, Coventry. Amber with white head. A fairly standard biscuity malt bitter, fairly dry and refreshing. Decent enough.
