Beers » English

Our principal style of ale sold here in Britain is usually served on-tap and is usually called "bitter" or "best bitter." Its taste is rather mild to assertive, with medium or even low alcohol content. The beer is usually amber, often with a reddish tinge, but it can be golden in colour. The dominating flavour of this beer is hop bitterness, which is accentuated by the low original gravity. Hop aroma is medium to high, but this is secondary. As opposed to mild and pale ale, Bitter should certainly be dry. Some styles will have a rich creamy head, while others are less carbonated. They are very similar to pale ales, and sometimes are identical. Traditionally, pale ales were bottled, while bitters were in casks or kegs. Nowadays, even this separation is no longer in use. Today, the major difference between a pale ale and a bitter is the name. Bitters are generally available in three strengths: ordinary, special and extra special bitter (or ESB). Pale ales are usually around the ESB strength, though some fall into the area of special bitter.
