COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

visionthing (5465) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 21, 2014
50cl can from Systembolaget, Strömstad. Pours dark amber with an off-white head. Mild malty and caramelly aroma with fruity notes, noticable, but mildly hoppy and hits of dried fruits, herbs and spices. A bit sweet with malty and mildly hoppy flavours and a decently bitter finish. Not quite my thing, but fair enough.

Toomio (595) - Joensuu, FINLAND - SEP 14, 2014
Kautta linjan tasapainoinen olut. Puoliviileänä hyvät aromit. Hieno ulkonäkö, sopivan paksu ja omintakeinen.

Aurelius (5428) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Tapered 500cc bottle, decent label. Woody brown, cloudy, not much head. Toffy aroma with a bit of hoppiness and peat - a little earthy. Pleasantly bittter up front, a little woody, gets sweeter as it warms. Some, but not much, fruitiness. Bitter backend, light alcohol tones. Medium body, quaffable. Not a huge pint, but a good one. Beer Stop, Tallahassee.

Gorgosh (505) - SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2014
Det är svårt att hamna mer i mittfåran än såhär. För en lager är ett sådant betyget mer än godkänt, för en bitter är det på gränsen till underkänt. Så orättvist konstruerade kan smaklökar vara, men det är inget att bli bitter över.

POLK (2219) - Hørning, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2014
Thin easy-drinking bitter with a fine foam which gives lace on the glass. Notes of caramel.

Can, 500 ml. Overall a good ale, nice palate and reasonable, bitter finish.
