Buckden Bronze Bitter is the first commercially brewed beer in the micro-brewery following a number of recipe iterations to the hop and malt types.
We obtained confirmation for CAMRA accreditation for Real Ale in the Bottle on 9th September 2009, and our labels now carry the CAMRA logo.
A golden-amber ale with gentle nut and caramel notes from the malt, complemented by a balancing hoppy sharpness. Bitterness derived from both hops and toasted malt builds in the dry finish.

Pale haze with grey-white dissipating head. Sherbert berry, touch of caramel nose. Steely and solid malt throughout from initial taste with a coppery bitterness, creamy nutshell finish. Not too bad here - toasty bitter.

568ml bottle, purchased at Ely Winter Beer festival 2013, best before 30 November 2013, at tasting on 20 January 2013. A traditional style brownish bitter with plenty of twigs! Light earthy malts and light earthy hops. Im fine with beers in this style but my preference is for a health whack of robust bitterness. This one didnt have enough for my taste. And, frankly, whilst Im OK with quaffing these from cask in a pub, its not the sort of thing I go for at home from a bottle. Easygoing and easy drinking but I found it rather uninspiring.

I really dont know how to rate this because it is the most cask-ale tasting bottled beer I have ever had. Is that a good thing? I prefer bottle conditioned brew, but it is pretty amazing that they are able to bottle this. Perhaps it is that I am too drunk to figure it out. Yes, that is it.

Leighton (20811) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2013
Bottle at the ChrisO Snow Tasting, London. Thanks to Chris, ultimate purveyor of random UK beers of dubious quality. Pours clear gold with a light, white cream head. Pale, bready malt nose with hints of grass. Light sweet flavor with nips of lemony citrus and white bread. Light bodied with average carbonation. Boring finish, some more pale malts and light hay. Bland.

568ml bottle ([email protected])
Stinky mash aroma. Mashy body. A bit of a mess. Swimming pool quickly dominates the aroma, and then spoils the whole experience. Nope.
