This is an interesting beer and outside of the pub in London, I have not tasted anything close to a real English bitter beer, until the CSB. It pours from a 22oz. bottle a medium copper (bitter) color and has a fairly foamy two inch head that dissipates slowly. The initial aroma is very much a bitter beer to me – bready, sour, and a bit of malt. The initial taste follows through and has that keg conditioned, bitter burnt toast flavor that, as I indicated, have only had in English bitter beers. This very much reminds of one of my favorite bitter beers that I had in London called “Nicholson’s Best Bitter.” Don’t know if they even make it any longer, but it was my favorite bitter when I haunted London in years past. The company says it’s “crisp yet malty” and that is it. It has that nice light crisp, fizzy overtone with just enough malt and just enough hop bitterness – the malt doesn’t overwhelm the hops and you can actually taste them. Many reviewers online claim it doesn’t taste like a bitter, either they are wrong, or I am. But wonder how many have tasted authentic English Bitter beer? For the style, it is, to me, much better than the imported British brews – the Fuller’s ESB, etc.

Price: $4.99 Served In: Bottle
