Notes: Bill's Bitter is a truly traditional style ale made with notes from beer historian Bill Schneller. He kindly advised us in formulating a bitter we proudly feel is an authentic representation. A blend of marris otter, optic, and pearl barley varieties makes up the base, while a touch of crystal malt and house made invert cane sugar syrup adds to the profile. Hopped appropriately with challenger and East Kent goldings, then open fermented with a classic yeast from West Yorkshire. Bill’s Bitter is the first choice for the discerning drinker.

Crowler from the brewery.

A clear amber with a dense off white head with excellent retention and lacing, this is a gorgeous pint. The nose is perfect for the style. Soft yet crisp biscuit and butterscotch, mild toffee, a clean and fresh earthy and mildly lemony hop character, this is great. The palate opens mildly bitter with a firm earthy, preserved lemon rind bitterness with a hint of mint and a little green grass. This is followed by a surprisingly full flavor, with toast, caramel, toffee and a little butterscotch. Soft, drying on the finish, this beer is medium light in body and softly carbonated. This would be a treat on cask.
