The West Country’s favourite beer derives from pure Mendip Spring Water…notably bitter, clean tasting, refreshingly dry and distinctive. Made with 100% best Maris Otter malt (the Rolls Royce of malts), together with a blend of (never divulged) English hop varieties…Butcombe Bitter is a moreish Mendip masterpiece.

tombyars (1702) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - OCT 12, 2011
Tasted this in The Esquire House, Glasgow (JDW) in August 2007. Clear dark amber in colour with a large creamy white head. Strong malty aroma with warm yeasty notes in the nose. Pale malt gives a rounded digestive biscuit flavout laced with syrupy dates. Hop resins add a spicy pleasant biterness. A well rounded maltoaf finish. A cracking session bitter.

Ungstrup (37561) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2011
Cask. An amber beer with a lazing orangey head. The aroma has notes of caramel and malt as well as a light note of nuts. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and caramel, as well as lighter notes of nuts and flowery hops, leading to a bitter finish.

gunnar (9087) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 18, 2011
Cask at The Hole In The Wall, Torquay. Pours cloudy amber with a tiny layer of small bubbles.Aroma of caramel and some flowery notes as well. Taste is weak bitter underneath a fine malty body, clean and dry mouthfeel.

ralphdot (1094) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2011
Amber colour with a thin head, malt and hop aroma, bitter with lots of hops.

jfb (6256) - GERMANY - JAN 7, 2011
(cask) clear copper colour with a very small white head. somewhat bland aroma of grass, earth, grain and a light hint of cherries. flavour is the same, slightly spicy, with a clean grainy profile and a bold herbal-hoppy finish. medium-bodied with soft to average carbonation.

KUEric (976) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 21, 2010
pours a deep dark, ruby red meets golden yellow, although yellow + red do not equal orange at all. Make sense? The aroma is next to nothing. The mouthfeel could definitely be described as smooth - although a little short and watery.
