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.

inbirraveritas (1576) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 4, 2017
Bottled, 500 ml. Clear copper body with a small off-white pillow on its top. Smell and taste of marmalade, aroma brings caramel, some toast, hints of earth... slick mouthfeel. Dried fruity, mild toasty finish. Good.

Fules (1225) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 28, 2017
Kicsi, gyorsan eltűnő hab vörösréz szín. Illata enyhén karamelles, fűszeres. Kissé fanyar, karamelles, fűszeres ízvilág. Könnyed, nem vizes, enyhén szénsavas, enyhén keserű. Kellemes ivósör.

Pallleon (353) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 22, 2017
Nagy melegben az egyik legjobb szomjoltó sör volt. Könnyed, kevés szénsav, jól iható sör. Kicsit vizes, de ettől csak jobban csúszik.

nephirem (539) - CROATIA - JUN 12, 2017
Bottle, 0.5l. Clear deep copper pour with one finger off-white head. Lasting thin layer, good lacing. Nose pretty much usual for the style, malty with good hop character and some grassy notes. Medium body, softly carbonated. Thick texture, really nice and smooth. Mildly bitter taste with good malt sweetness in the background. Usual aroma, nothing exceptional but nicely balanced and refreshing. Notes of caramel, grainy. Touch of wood in the mouthfeel. Solid hop presence, grassy, some honey notes. Finishes dry with mild bitterness lingering on. Overall, enjoyable and well executed bitter.

Bottled 500ml. -from local Lidl Zagreb as Butcombe Original Beer. Clear dark golden/pale amber coloured, small white head, light malt and caramel in the nose. Sweet malty, caramel, light fruity, notes of grass and touch of metal with rather dry finish. Ok one.
