Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 04-06-2011

"Bachelor Bitter is a well-rounded traditional style English pub bitter that is always on tap at our pubs. Its full-flavored perfection comes from crystal malts, providing caramelized and toasted sugar notes, and generous amounts of English and domestic hops.

3.5/5  rDev n/a
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

On tap served in a pint glass

A- Clear rustic orange in color with one finger eggshell head. Minimal head retention, minimal lacing.

S - Roasted malts primary scent. Minors include chocolate, cream, pine hops.

T - Follows the scent, but surprising NOT very bitter for a beer in the class. I usually don't like ESBs, and this beer was very palatable for me as a Bitter.

O - Uncharacteristically not very bitter for a beer in the class. Was enjoyable, but I won't get again since I don't love this class of beer. (514 characters)

Clear golden colour with a small off-white head. Poor head retention.

Rounded citrussy hop aroma with a touch of toasty malt.

Crisp, yet smooth, caramel malt. Good earthy hop balance. Nice.

Moderate body with low carbonation. Very good.

A smooth, tasty Bitter with nice flavour. Well balanced but it could be a touch drier. (327 characters)
