Best Bitter
A true best bitter with plenty of body and flavor. The character of the ale, as with all Everards ales, is enhanced by the traditional technique of "Dry Hopping" - where whole, dry, aromatic hops are added by hand to each cask of the ale prior to conditioning. An ale which has almost universal appeal due to the exceptionally fine balance of English malt and hops. The finish is long, dry and extremely satisfying.

Parmenion777 (293) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2017
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2017 Pours a clear amber with a coppery tint and a small beige head. Aroma is orange marmalade and light malt. A moderately sweet malt taste, smooth in the mouth and a light citrus fruitiness. A very light (too light) bitterness in the finish, could do with more to cut through the sweetness.

Cask. Amber body, no head. Mixed dried fruits and caramel. Quite basic bitter. Bit oxidized this one is.

jmgreenuk (9447) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - OCT 10, 2015
Cask at the Fieldhouse, Solihull. Poured a clear medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is light hop, some malt, The flavour is moderate to light bitter with a smooth creamy, light hop, light citrus palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Not too sweet, not too bitter. A smooth and refreshing session ale and as good as it had been for a generation.

Cask at The Globe in Dunstable. Fairly malty, some toffee, with a bit of dry hop to balance. Very drinkable, classic English session beer.

Cask at the Windsor Castle W8. I used to love this when I was younger, pints in the Pickerel, awesome. It’s a very old school bitter, no craft nonsense here, needs to be fresh, balanced and quite malty with just a lingering hop finish. Was it as good as I remembered? Probably not on this occasion, didn’t quite carry that hop finish as well, so a vaguely malty bitter. Oh well. And they had two lots of Tim Taylors on cask so what can you do...

Weefannybaws (130) - Barrhead, SCOTLAND - APR 18, 2015
Pint in The Osprey, Newton Mearns. Amber ale with light creamy head. Refreshing ale with bitter, floral overtones. Perfect accompaniment to crisps or nuts.

ianwelby (1385) - SCOTLAND - APR 15, 2015
Clear amber pint with a thick creamy head. Sweet malty flavour, very slight almost metallic hint in the aftertaste. Would get a touch sickly after too many but it’s quite nice.

mabuzzer (842) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - APR 4, 2015
Cask @ Crown and Anchor, Welby. Pours clear, copper coloured with a creamy white head. Little aroma, taste is malty with soft fruit and maybe a little lactic acid. Pleasant, slightly bitter finish
