A Best Bitter brewed in a traditional Sussex style using Maris Otter, Crystal and Chocolate malts with East Kent Golding hops. Typical of Dark Star ales, the Best Bitter relies on the heavy handed addition of aromatic hops late in the boil.

planky84 (3591) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2013
Cask at the Staion Hotel, Hither Green. Gold/amber pour with a white head. Nutty, caramel malt aroma with a smidgen of citrus. Fruit burst in the flavour, lots of pear and citrus in there. Bitter-fruit finish.

Grumbo (4554) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2013
Cask at The Orange Tree, Chelmsford. I have had some excellent Dark Star beers before, but Partridge is a long way from being their best. It was just rather bland and uninspiring.

Desverger (14024) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2013
([email protected] Station Hotel, SE London) An amber/brown in colour with a medium white head, medium body. Aroma/taste is caramel mineral malt, with slight fruit undertones. Medium sweet initially with a bitter hoppy finish. Good stuff.

kermis (15154) - The Hague / Amsterdam / Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 29, 2012
Cask at Craft Beer Company, Clerkenwell. Pours clear dark golden with a white head. Aroma of butter, malt, toffe and fudge. Flavour is light to moderate sweet and bitter. Light bodied with soft carbonation.

jmgreenuk (10516) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - DEC 28, 2012
Draft at the Craft Beer Company, Clerkenwell. Poured a nice reddish brown with a glass hugging white head. The aroma is hugely caramel and very pleasurable. However the flavour was a little sour, watery and not particularly tasty. I would not order another.

DanielBrown (4578) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2012
Hand pulled at the Victoria, Birmingham. Brown bitter. Resolutely English. Native hops produce dryness, mushy orchard fruit and a smidge of preserve. Somewhat dry, slightly rich. Traditional but well executed. Good Bitter like this is very refreshing.

Rich fruity malt and dry bitterness. Chestnut, east drinking. English hops.
