Our salute to tradition British pub ale. This Best Bitter is brewed with expensive British Maris Otter malt with a hint of both crystal and chocolate malts and features Fuggle hops. Medium bodied with a crisp hoppy finish. A style of beer that is rarely brewed in the US.

Clean amber copper pour with one finger of off white head. Bready and lightly herbal with some biscuity notes and that almost butty character that comes from a bready beer that’s kind of off. Light body and dry finish.

Theydon_Bois (14316) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2015
Keg at the brewpub, 17/02/15. Clear copper with a moderate off white head. Nose is caramel, light apple, biscuit. Taste comprises biscuit malt, light spice, toffee. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with light bitterings. Adequate for style but no more so than that @whelmed.

tia (1433) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - APR 3, 2015
Tap @ pour. Not my style. Hazy light caramel with creamy head. Smells bready- actually smells like dry cat food plus a floral note. Lightly bitter plus wheaty. Seemed a little disjointed to me.

ABV listed as 3.8% on the board at green man (typo?). Nice aroma of biscuit and light toffee, British hopping, good balance, decent body, sweetish finish, very drinkable.
