A Northern English style Bitter characterized by a rich creamy head and working class body, robust flavor and a bright amber color. This beer will fly with R.A.F. Wings.

Braudog (6377) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JUN 13, 2003
This is a very dark amber beer with a big creamy head. It's milky smooth, heartily malty and wonderfully robust in the tradition of the best British bitters. Beautiful.

One of the nicest textures I ever had in a beer. Dark brown, almost opaque color, with a tannish creamy foamy head. Could taste a hint of hops, but moreso dominated by maltiness. Smooth drinking, and a heck of a lot better than boddington’s.

Very creamy and delicious. One of the better ones available at the brewpub. Easy to drink in everyway. A wonderful beer. Cream is the appropriate word.

This one had a nice fluffy white head with a golden/orange body. It had a nice creamy taste with a great mouthfeel. Overall this is a good summer beer for session drinking near Camden Yards.

guzzler67 (1670) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUN 5, 2003
On a nitro tap, a beautiful looking pint. Big head, lacing that lasted until the end. Subdued nose of malts and grain. Smooth, velvety taste. Pleasantly bitter aftertaste.

HighlanderOne (1237) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - SEP 18, 2014
On tap at Pratts. Aroma of roasted malt. Another nice lookin beer - mahogany red with creamy head. Creamy roasted malt with piney hops, caramel and citrus notes. Hand pumped draw gives this a creamy feel. Nicely done.

drjoeng (935) - SINGAPORE - JUN 10, 2015
6%ABV. English Bitter Actually has a nose that has fresh pleasant flavors of vanilla and sweet buttter. There is a thin creamy tan head and a deep amber color coming in at 20ºSRM. Heavy ponderous mouthfeel, slightly salty and sour. Good malty body. Substantial without being showy. Good quality bitters Clean without being cloying. Goes on Favorites List for English Bitter.
