Good, quality English Bitter. I wouldn't be surprised if many of these reviewers are used to drinking 100 IBU, 8% IPA's or something and they just don't get it. I've been to Britain 12 or 15 times and spent a fair amount of time in Yorkshire, I can tell you this is exactly what Bitter is supposed to taste like. Good job fellas.

Attractive coppery color with the modest English-style head. Served in a small nonic, the 10 oz version is styled just like the 16 oz. Nice beery aroma, with enough carbonation for the style.

Pleasant fruity flavor along with some roast malt. Biscuits and a touch of earthiness, but quite clean and tasty. Warm and rairly malty. More hops than the Mild, but has just that perfect bitter twang. Another good take on the English Bitter.

Hugely drinkable and surprising low alcohol content. Pleasant malt flavor mellows the lighter-bodied style. On tap at the brewpub in west Denver.
