A refreshing beer of real flavour - distinctively hoppy and dry with malt aromas. Delicious served cool. Adnams brewery has stood in the heart of Southwold for over six hundred years and "Southwold Jack" appears on our beer labels. He continues to guard over our longest-serving beer brewed here in Southwold on the Suffolk coast -The Bitter. Bitter goes well with roast meats and fish cooked in batter as the clean bitterness cuts through the slightly fatty notes and hence keeps the palate refreshed. Our Bitter also makes a good aperitif. Available (pasteurised) in 500ml bottles and 500ml cans.

500ml. Pours a dark red/ruby/brown. Thick, cream coloured head with huge lacing all the way to the end gives it a rare 5 for appearance. Taste was of malts and hops with a small amount of citrus fruits. Nice full mouth feel. Great bitter.

Pours deep clear amber into a n English pint. White head with medium retention recedes leaving spot lacing to skim surface. Sweet caramel aromas. Soft with sweet toffee and caramel upfront turning to mild bitter nuts in the medium length finish.

ben4321 (6739) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Location: 500 ml bottle from Sparrow, 1/24/13

Aroma: The nose is crisp and fruity, with some malty notes, biscuit, and British hops
Appearance: Pours a clear, dark reddish color with a small off-white head and light, spotty lace
Flavor: The taste is a bit fruity and malty, medium sweet, with some light, crisp hops later on
Palate: The body is fairly light, not watery, with a crisp, clean feel, and some fairly lively carbonation
Overall Impression: This is a very solid one. It works in the style plenty well. Overall, it leans malty, but that’s the style, and they did a very solid job with the style here.

From a bottle poured a n color brown color with a fair amount of head. Light bitter malty flavor with a lingering finish.

ExpendableHero (932) - Florida, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Copper colored beer with an off-white head. Aromas of raisins, and some caramel. Tastes of some caramel, raisins, hints of prunes, some brown sugar, and dark fruit. A bit earthy too. Taste is truly bitter, but it works. Bittersweet finish is quite dry. Smooth, enjoyable, and quite tasty. I would have this again.

Grzesiek79 (4435) - Radom, POLAND - JAN 13, 2013
Dobry i gożki bitter. Bursztynowy kolor, mocna piana chć średniej wielkości, trochę pęcherzykowata. Aromat słaby choś świeże trawy wyczuwalne. Finisz jeszcze bardziej gożki niż pierwsze łyki degustacji. Klasyczny bitter

garthicus (2945) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 7, 2013
Appearance: Dark red, medium white head. Aroma: Slightly grassy, hoppy, quite malty, beautiful grainy aroma. Flavour: Caramel, lots of malt, grassy, tiny bit of dark fruit, a little bready with a long malty finish.

Aroma of hay, poured out a clear mahogany beer with white head. Refrmeshing entry, smooth middle, and dry bitter finish. Good food pub beer.

Darkish orange/carmel color.Short head a bit of lacing.Pretty clear. Aroma has caramel with some buttery notes,light fruit/floral maybe peach. Also has a spice to it. Taste is fairly smooth with carmel/toast.Mild fruit/floral tones.Mild sweetness. Peppery type bittering.Mild plantyness. More in the buttery/carmel with some mineral taste overall. I would get this again,maybe not that soon though.
