This style has its roots in the pale ale revolution of the 19C. The term bitter though, did not emerge until the early 20C, possibly to distinguish it from the equally popular mild. This is a scintillating pale ale! The malt base is simple with Maris Otter and Lager malts. The hops steal the show with German, American, Czech, Slovenian and English varieties providing lemon fresh citrus qualities. Light fresh and easy, drink on its own or to counter heavy or spicy foods.
