COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular.
Best Bitter
A true best bitter with plenty of body and flavor. The character of the ale, as with all Everards ales, is enhanced by the traditional technique of "Dry Hopping" - where whole, dry, aromatic hops are added by hand to each cask of the ale prior to conditioning. An ale which has almost universal appeal due to the exceptionally fine balance of English malt and hops. The finish is long, dry and extremely satisfying.

Cask at the haymarket. Pours clear amber, thick white head. Aromas of oat biscuits and toffee. Taste is more of the same. Decent, if unexciting.

On cask at the Haymarket. Appearance - amber with a nicely proportioned head. Nose - gentle oatmeal and toffee. Taste - Hobnobs so oatmeal and gentle caramel holding it together. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - itís balanced but itís uninspiring

jfb (3968) - Freising, GERMANY - OCT 12, 2014
(cask) clear deep golden-amber colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of yeast, honey and powdered sugar, with notes of heavy cardboard, some pear, scotch and green apple. flavour is mostly toffee, cardboard and light banana, quite twiggy, with a light sweetness and some green tea. flavour is medium-bodied with soft carbonation.

Vladivostok (257) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2014
Mid-brown old-style best bitter. Little aroma, buttery palate with very little hop bitterness and unsurprisingly a very gentle finish. Drinkable but undistinguished. A domestic moggy rather than a tiger.

Cask. Light orange, slight haze but mostly clear, still, small ring of scummy head. Aroma Ö is like smelling water really. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is watery with a touch of caramel and almost bretty lemon, softly bitter finish. The wateriness makes it very drinkable, but itís a bit underflavoured for me.

Light ruby colour with little head. Inoffensive taste, unremarkable beer. Good but not great.

mR_fr0g (3437) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2014
Cask handpull at pub in Birmingham. Golden light amber colour with a creamy off white head. Aroma is light caramel, nutty. Quite sweet. Flavour is bland, nutty malt English yeast. Dull beer. Palate is creamy and nitrogenated. Boring.

SlackerMads (1658) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2014
Cask. Light hazy copper with a medium sized good lacing off white head. Grain, brewmash, caramel, light butter, nutty. A bit low and not that good on flavour, but the mouthfeel is good. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, light/medium sweet and bitter. Gentle dry finish.

mighty_meadow (214) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - AUG 14, 2014
Pours lovely golden brown with a nice head. One of the smoothest ales I have tasted in a while. Instant hit of creamy toffee and fudge. Excellent session ale.

Alengrin (2180) - BELGIUM - AUG 12, 2014
Classic English bitter leaning towards English-style IPA in its dry-hopping. Thin creamy head as custom for an English ale, warm amber colour; apply aroma with caramel malts and delicate herbal aromatic hops; creamy, smooth, supple mouthfeel, dried fruits, caramel and some nutty malts, finishing in a mild but long, herbal hoppiness. Very drinkable.
