FBC Best Bitter uses all English hops. It is served via a nitrogen dispense system which creates a firm head of smaller bubbles. This allows us to serve the beer with a lower amount of CO2 and thus the flavor of the beer is not dominated by gas tingle on the tongue.

Not their best, in fact probably their-worst. Dull, John Smiths-esque nitro bitter with nothing to recommend about it.

Golden brown with a creamy white head. Sweet musty malt and citrus aroma and taste with a mildly astringent finish.

On tap. Clear amber golden with a creamy off-white nitro head leaving laces. Nutty aroma. Medium body, low in carbonation with light accents of nuts and roasted malt. Hardly any bitterness. 250709

From tap at the brewpub. Pours clear and golden orange with a small, dense creamy and slight off-white head. Mild fruity and light sweet aroma. Mild caramelish and subdued fruity flavoured. Light bitter finish.

Pours amber with no head. Aromas of caramel but that’s about it. Slightly sweet. Mouthfeel is smooth with a bitter finish. One dimensional.

This was an interesting brew, I had never had a bitter on nitrogen before. Has that sweet caramel flavor but with a very smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Fun to try but I wouldn’t get it again.

Had this on cast on tap. Nice rich amber color with floral aroma. I was expecting more hops, but was pleasantly surprised by the malty overtones. Nice mix and a decent beer.

Review of the cask-conditioned best bitter Aroma: Slightly floral seems to be Kent Goldng but not noticable for a cask-conditioned beer Appearance: Poured a deep copper with nice clean white head which dissipated quickly Flavor: Malty flavors followed by a hint of spicy hop flavors... the hop bitterness seemed to have a little tea like characteristics Palate: balanced beer with a creamy finish lingers long enough to pause....
