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.

jmgreenuk (4921) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 28, 2013
Cask at the Craven Arms, Birmingham. Poured a clear amber with a thin bubbly white head. The aroma is malty, but weak. The flavour is weak bitter, a little malty and some citrus hints. A very agreeable and drinkable session beer but I would prefer a little more bitterness if i’m honest.

Finn (4402) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2014
Fra cask/gravity på den koselige - og knøttlille - Newport Ale House, Isle of Wight 24 Jan 14. Mørk gylden. 0 skum. Svak ferskenaroma. Smaken litt vassen. Mandler. Svakt søtlig ettersmak. Grei - men litt kjedelig.

johndoughty (4071) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2004
A robust bitter with plenty of flavour that explodes im your mouth.Very well balanced and in a field full of mundane bitters this one really stands out.
