Adnams Southwold Bitter: Try this beer if you like beer by Brandon C. Hovey

Adnams Southwold Bitter

Beer Style: English Bitter

Abv: 4.1%

Served: Bottle poured into pint glass

Background:Lately, I have wanted to explore English ales. Alongside this, I also plan on exploring British Beer more in depth. I decided to start with Adnams Bitter.

 

You’re probably thinking that Bitter means it will be dry and hoppy. That is incorrect. In English brewing, a beer called a bitter will be balanced. Don’t ask why, just know this before you drink. This tea colored beer is a delightful refreshment.

Taste and Aroma: This beer smells like a beer to remember! The malty aroma and off white head look classic. I feel as if an artist painted this beer and it has come to life out of art rather than a brewery. Yet brewing is an art as well as a science. The taste is of minerals, and leafy wet grass. The spicy bite at the end is a great way to be refreshed after a long day’s work.

Final Analysis: Check out Adnams Southwold Bitter if you are curious about English ales. This is a beer for beer drinkers. If you don’t like beer don’t drink this. If you do, what are you waiting for? Get this beer.
