A happy Christmas season calls for a delicious session beer! Paulís Bitter Holiday is a traditional English-style bitter. Fuggles hops from the UK are featured prominently both in late kettle and in dry hop additions. The hints of black pepper and mown-grass characters from these hops balance beautifully with the malts.Enjoy for a happy Christmas!

This one poured a murky lighter brown color with a beige head. Aroma was of grassy and herbal hops, with light caramle and toffee. Flavor was pretty similar, nice balance, and a very tasty session beer.

One of the only drinkable Duck Rabbits of the night at Barcade since 5 out of the 10 were infected or very, very old. Hazy red amber pour with foamy off white head and nice lacing rings. Notes of fruit, spice, rye, grass, and other strong hoppy notes. Pretty good.

Fucktons of this over the last few months, most recently on draft at The Federal, Durham. Handsome copper pour with a hefty, filmy head thatís perfectly apposite for the style. Fragrant Fuggles and mild herbal qualities in the nose. Body is fairly robust, again on point. Very enjoyable flavors, impressive complexity for the style, with the sharpness of the yeast and spice complementing the modest hops and understated malts quite well. Fine session beer.

Fatheads in pittsburgh: Pours like ice tea with minimal head. A very good ESB. Strangely enough, I would probably enjoy in the summer much more. Very good and well balanced beer with adequate bitterness

On tap at the Federal in Durham. Pours a light amber, clear with a very modest head. Nose is toasty, toasty, toasty, with mild bitterness, a touch of hops, and cereal and grain. I love bitters, and this was a solid in-between beer to bridge Old Rasputin (nitro?!?!?) and a Two-Hearted, but it just didnít quite make the grade, both in terms of bitters and of Duck-Rabbit. Two great things that donít go well together...?

Tap at Milltown. Nose is toasty, malt, light tartness. Flavor is malt, light caramel, toast, light biterness. Very English feel.

cheap (5362) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2011
On tap at the mad mex south hills. A little darker than a pale lager. Very fresh smeeling brew. Small amount of co2 present on the palate. Quite easy, much better than I was expecting. Smooth with no real ill ale effects in there. Nothing I can really say bad about this brew. Just plain easy going well behaved beer fun. An unexpected good beer experience. I would say this is more like a mild ale than a bitter.

Tap at Tylerís Raleigh. Clear amber pour with a fluffy off white head and drippy lace. Aroma is yeasty, spicy hops and grains. Flavor is the same. Glad to have tried it

emacgee (4613) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Draught at Milltown. Pours a pretty clean dark copper amber with two fingers of sticky sandstone tan head. Super Engilsh nose, very bready and herbal. Lightly grassy with some vegetal notes. Very grassy and spicy hop flavor with some herbal and earthy notes. Lots of fresh baked bread and some cereal grain. Some yeast esters. Light body and mild carbonation. Low bitterness.
