GBBF Champion Beer 1989.
Slight change of recipe in 1999.
Chiswick Bitter is Fullerís popular session strength ale, which derives its name from the area of London where Fullerís is based. This lower strength beer is held in high regard across the South East of England and, like its stablemates London Pride and ESB, has won the prestigious CAMRA Great British Beer Festival, Beer of the Year award, in 1989. In fact, Fullerís is the only brewery in England whose top three brands have won this award: a fitting testament to the skill and dedication of the Fullerís brewers!

Sinaasappelsap is voornaamste aroma element. De smaak is licht IPA, maar stuk wateriger, maar niet verkeerd. Schuim is lekker klef en blijft plakken. Snel doordrinken anders wordt het bier erg laf.

NikkTwist (1578) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Having at Strangelove?s in Philly from a beer engine. Billed as a cask pour and feels properly so, despite calls that it is impossible to find in the USA. Possible its all a conspiracy. But if not - poured a clear dark gold with a massive off-white head. Medium toasted wheat. Honey Challah. Dark oranges. Smooth mix. Low carbonation (with the beer engine pour) but still feels pretty full for a bitter. Easy drinking. Only a very slight spicy edge. Nicely balanced.

Holmen2 (781) - NORWAY - JUL 5, 2014
On cask at Blackbird close to Earlís Court. Dark golden. Uneven, but dense and persisten white head. Biscuits, cereals and a hint of yeast in aroma. Well balanced taste with moderate hops and sweet malt.Bittersweet aftertaste.

Shot (129) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JUN 13, 2014
From the cask at Fullerís Ale & Pie House at Earlís Court, London. Golden in color with a thin white head. Very subtle aromas of malt and hops. Flavors are also very light--grassy notes with bready tones. Subtle hop bite. Not a very exceptional ale, but perhaps a typical representation of an English bitter. Not terrible, but not outanding.

Mild, bready aroma. Honey, resin, mineral, and metal taste. Not much bitterness and thus disappointing.

Seffle (162) - MŲlndal, SWEDEN - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle from Hemköp. Nice clear dark amber. Malty caramell with a hint of citrus. Mild bitterness. A bit soapy metallic aftertaste. Watery. Very nice as a folk ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma: bread malts, flowers. Appearance: pale hazy gold, frothy head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: watery, light bitters, hay, floral hoppiness. Overall: below-average bitter, too bland, not enough flavours. Pint at The Dove, Hammersmith.

Cask. Decent light amber brown pour. Quite light, mild citrus. General thinness. Touch of caramel sweetness. No hops to report... doesnít exactly go down "smooth", as thereís a slight astringency to it. Pure meh.

Drack denna pŚ en QPR-pub i London. Den fungerade som en bra fŲrematchŲl men ingen Ųl att sitta och njuta av.
