Light amber best bitter with balanced aromas & bitterness.
Taking its name from a town within the high Arctic, despite its cool name this is the sort of bitter that you’ll easily warm to. Our Best Bitter combines the finest malt and hops to produce a well balanced malty and hoppy flavour with a light amber colour.

BeardedAvenger (1266) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2017
Cask at Swan, Farnborough. Feint malty aroma. Amber/jade. Good thick white head. Blotchy. Light bitter, which gains in strength but not to much strength at all. Light to medium bodied. Watery. Carbonation comes through towards the end. Long, if weak, finish. Another BBB - bland boring bitter.

Pint at the Royal Oak in Bracknell. Pale copper red colour with an ok head. Red fruity, dry, bitter. Indistinct fruity aroma. A pretty ordinary beer.

fairwater (146) - Reading, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2012
Cask @ Great Expectations. Pours clear mid-light brown. No real aroma. Quite bland on first taste, very low bitterness. Not unpleasant but not hankering for another.
