Hogshead Bitter is a very traditional style of beer using the finest Maris Otter malt, combined with luscious cane sugars complimented by delicious, fruity Bramling cross hops to give a malty, crisp and hoppy flavoured ale. It is one of our more popular seasonal ales and goes superbly with ham and light cheeses

beeebon (443) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2015
Pours amber brown with a white lingering head. Smell is very much sweet/toffee malts, slightly earthy. Taste is sweet with noticable bitterness which lingers. A little thin feel in the mouth but overall a pretty nice bitter.

500ml brown bottle. Tastes like a home brew made with too much sugar. Green apple, wet flannel, caramel. Not good. Thin. Id rather have a home brew.

StueyD (1581) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2014
A mid copper coloured beer with a thick white head. A light malty aroma, nutty and caramel with a background hint of fruity hop. A medium dry mouthfeel. A mouth filling malty flavour, nutty, and loads of medium sweet caramel and brown sugar, toffee and butterscotch, but in a good way. This is followed by a mild bitterness from pithy citrusy hops. The hoppiness lasts into a lingering finish.

mighty_meadow (308) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - SEP 9, 2014
500ml bottle from Home Bargains. Pours chestnut with thin white head. Not a lot of aroma but pleasant, almost too sweet taste. Brown sugar, raisins and bit of prune. Slightly bitter aftertaste which comes as a bit of a surprise. Decent ale for the price.
