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.

JorgeLee (2020) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2015
Cask at the Windsor Castle W8. I used to love this when I was younger, pints in the Pickerel, awesome. Its 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, didnt 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...

Pint in The Osprey, Newton Mearns. Amber ale with light creamy head. Refreshing ale with bitter, floral overtones. Perfect accompaniment to crisps or nuts.

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 its quite nice.

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2015 Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear amber colour with a creamy white head. Aroma of toasted malt, caramel, some biscuit and slight apple. Taste of caramel, subtle toffee, slight biscuit, a little yeast, some apple and maybe grape. Light bodied and a smooth texture. A short, biscuity malt bitterness in the finish. Yeah its boring buts a pleasant enough session beer. Really smooth too.
