Putting modesty aside for a moment, we believe that Theakston Best Bitter is the quintessential English Ale. A beer enjoyed by quality ale enthusiasts all over the country.
Short Notes (Cyclops definition)
The definitive English Bitter. This fine, golden coloured beer, now restored to 3.8% ABV, has a full flavour that lingers pleasantly on the palate. With a good bitter-sweet balance this beer has a robust hop character described as citrus and spicy. It’s a refreshing and very satisfying pint – noted for the aroma of its Fuggles and dry hopping strain Golding to add to its characteristic Theakston aroma.
