This session beer is not as bitter as you may think and has malty, caramel notes that cut through the hints of bitterness. Made with English hops, this amber ale is very easy-drinking.
The English Special Bitter by Agar’s Brewery may be considered an old man’s beer by its name alone, but let me assure you it is far from it. This beer is categorised under the Pale Ale style, more specifically, an Amber Ale, and offers a great alternative for those who enjoy ales but want to try something different.
This beer reminds me of the style you get on tap at many London pubs, its dark and not too carbonated though it will produce some head when poured in a pint glass. There are some hints of caramel but it offers a good blend of sweet and bitter. This is an easy drinking ale for those who want something a little bolder.
