Cask conditioned – handpump – GBBF. A copper coloured bitter with some citric hop in the aroma, but also a sweetish undertone. The taste is crunchy and malty. Some cracker notes and a touch of late sweetness. Quite nice.

Bottle (from Bitter Virtue, BBE Oct 06). Fruity hops to the fore with gentle malt sweetness in the mouth. Well balanced but just lacking a little pazaz.

[Cask at Volunteers Arms, GBBF 2004] An amber beer with a small white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel. The flavor is fruity with notes of caramel and a bitter finish, but the body is thin.

Cask conditioned at The Botanic Gardens, Ventnor, I.o.W. Light amber beer with bubbly head. Well balanced malty bitter with a tangy, lemony hop overlay. Plenty of condition, the beer maintains a refreshing dryness throughout.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Filtered bottle. I enjoyed Goddard's Fuggle Dee Dum so much I opened this bottle of Special Bitter. Mmmm. Chris Coleman seems to be doing things right. A restrained yet tasty session bitter. Wonderfully balanced.
