Skinner’s Betty Stogs Bitter

Deliciously sessionable, simple example of an English bitter. Summer 2007 from notes – somewhere in Cornwall!
Main characteristics include the biscuit malts, the smooth mouthfeel and the drinkability. This is the kind of beer that one thinks of as being typical of the refreshing, quaffable and moreish bitter of yesteryear.
Mid brown pour with a better than expected head considering the cask serving. Long, drawn out nose and aftertaste that match perfectly. Malts compete with one another in a gentle competetion for your senses. Subtle beyond belief, but this adds to the drinkability. Mild hop notes that are clean and citrus based complete the package.
A great example of the beer I love the most and the type of beer that seems impossible to find in the USA. It’s their loss.
