London Beer Review: Best Bitter from Courage

 Welcome to the Shed. I am even-star and this is The Beer in Review. Today's London craft beer review is for Best Bitter from Courage.

Well here is a turn up for the barrels. Good old Courage Best Bitter which I haven't had in such a long time I had forgotten how tasty it was. It has to be years and years and it was probably one of the first real ales I ever had here in the UK. Like way back when I liked beer as a drink in general but hadn't got obnoxious about it yet.

I suppose it might seem exotic if you don't live in the UK but Courage Best is like part of the pub furniture in many establishments. And not because it is bland and inoffensive as you might expect, but because it is a darn good pint.

It is a clear dark amber and pleasantly hoppy a bit like Sam Adams Boston lager. Which is no coincidence since both beers use German noble hops varieties. It is a fresh, sweetish, light bitter with a green floral aromatics. Extremely quaffable and refreshing.
