Spitfire is a great example of a best bitter. Kentish fruity hops are offset by maltiness, with some floral notes throughout. No need to be snobby - I’m not a fan of some other shepard neame brews, but spitfire is a safe bet which is often underrated. It’s ruined by poor cellaring and pipes in some pubs, and can taste pretty cheesy, but it usually does the job on a cold afternoon. Quite high ABV for a bitter, but this is subtly done.
