COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
“Bitter English”… it’s been nearly 240 years, they probably aren’t that bitter anymore, right? Anyway: this is our take on a traditional English Bitter, arguably the most widely-made style in all of the UK. Bitters are enjoyed in pubs all across the English countryside. You could even say that it’s the English Bitter-style that originated the idea of “sessionable”. Our version has a mineral dryness nicely complimented by a balanced hop bitterness. The beautiful, amber color is the result of crystal and brown malts. With a light body, low carbonation, and an ABV of 3.4%, it’s the perfect beer for your next session.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head. Aroma of grain, grass, and lemon citrus. Taste is also grainy, with notes of grass, citrus, pine, and hints of caramel.

Jow (2086) - New York, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Tap at Draught 55. Excited to get to try this new brewery. Pours incredibly light yellow like watered down macro, nose is light hops and citrus. Tastes of lemon, grass, minerally, some pine. It’s very bitter and very clean, kinda stings back of throat but is very appealing..can’t put finger on why i like this but I really do.

The Diamond, Brooklyn tap ($6): Pours amber with a whitish head. Aroma is toffee, honey, and a little bit of earth. Slightly sweet. Mild and subdued hoppiness. Plenty of honey and toffee in the taste. Easily sessionable and pleasant to drink.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Draft from The Diamond in Green Point, Brooklyn. Pours light clear chestnut with a small white head. Nose is crisp toasted malts, with toffee and light floral notes. Hop bitterness hinted at, which comes through on the palate. Maybe it was just the dearth of a good bitter here in the States and my desire to relive my days in Britain, but damn this was refreshing. Huzzah for 3.4% beers.

jcr (2198) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Draft. Clear golden/light amber body. Frothy, off-white head. Aroma of light caramel, toasted grain, floral hops. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Clean malts. Slightly tangy finish. Appreciate the flavors in this session beer — and the balance and crispness. Aroma is a little light, but the flavor makes up for it.

beerscout (298) - New Windsor, New York, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Tap at Brewery. It is hard to find a bitter that is decent on tap in the states. Newburgh’s is what I look for in a bitter. Creamy fluffy white head, with copper color. It is smooth, creamy, but bitter. Low carbonation, like the pulled cask ales I sampled in England. The aroma is of flowery hops and an touch of malty bread and toffee. Palate is very smooth, but the finish is clean and bitter. Flavor was of buttery toffee, estery, and pine. It is a beer I want to sip and enjoy a second afterward.

Of all the beers at this place, this one is by far my favorite. The clarity, the taste, the after taste, all of it wraps itself into a perfect little package. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
