COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
The West Country’s favourite beer derives from pure Mendip Spring Water ... notably bitter, clean tasting, refreshingly dry, distinctive, and moreish! Made with 100% best Maris Otter Malt, together with a blend of (never divulged) traditional English Hop varieties. Butcombe’s only beer for the Brewery’s first 20 years, and now bottled to celebrate winning the Silver Medal at the Great British Beer Festival 2009.

einherjar (354) - Rijeka, CROATIA - JUN 2, 2017
Butcombe Original Beer from Lidl. Aroma malt, caramel, hops. Copper color, small white head. Taste citrus, fruits, caramel, spices, bitter finish. I’ll buy then one again.

Marko (5718) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 30, 2017
Butcombe Original Beer. Poured a dark amber body with a tiny white head. Malty light aroma, fruity touches, bread, raisins, bubblegum. Flat, too flat mild taste, but actually interesting, tasty, light dark bread notes, vague bitterish herbal touch, cherry, creamy. A proper bitter really. Nothing too special, but I see no reason to be harsh about it. Unlike some of the others...

Davros IX (359) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2017
2016 catch up - A good honest bitter and one that I would drink again. Malt, hops and the expected mouthfeel. Some farmyard, biscuit and a good level of carbonation.

Bottle. Amber in colour. Hoppy; grassy and spicy (peppery) hops. Fruity; lightly citrus fruity, lemon. Malty; bready malts, caramel. Good hop/fruit/malt balance. Mildly bitter fruity hoppy over sweet malts. Dry throughout. Drinkable. (2011-09-26)

Drinkable bitter. Not a great deal of depth to flavour. Smooth and easy to drink.

Delirium (669) - Falmouth, Cornwall, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2016
Bottle. Pours clear amber with a rapidly disappearing head. Aroma is grass, hay, caramel, and bread. Flavor is slightly caramel-sweet malt, with a grassy hops and a little bread in the background. More bitter than your average English bitter. I like it.

6/1-500 ml bottle at Edward Moon.  Bready malts, bit of spice, and earthy hops.  Finishes mid-dry.  Clean, soft, with a lengthy duration.
