COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Redoak’s Bitter is an interpretation of the traditional session English style bitter with redoak’s own character added. It has a rich amber colour, a good balance of hops and caramel aroma with a pleasant ’crystal malt’ flavour and finishes with a refreshing bitterness. The excellent mouth feel and body of this beer is bound to surprise you.

Tap at Redoak - not my preferred style so points reflect that - malt palate - kinda 2 dimensional - pleasant enough.

In bottle at Craigs. Pours a dark golden colour with a fair beige head. Aroma of passion fruit, pineapple, caramel and yeast. Similar flavours with some sour lemon and a fair degree of bitterness. Very heavy carbonation and moderate CO2 prickle. Reminds me of Passiona with a vinous grapefruit and sauvignon blanc character also. Really interesting. This is definitely growing on me.
