Bathams Delph Ales Best Bitter (ENG)

‘Brewers of genuine beer since 1877’, so reads the label of Bathams Delph Ales Best Bitter. Imagine my surprise then when I knocked the top off and poured out what can only be described as ‘lager’.  ‘Lager is as lager does’ as Forest Gump once said, and this so-called ‘best bitter’ is pale straw in colour and has the malty smell of the aforementioned amber nectar.

Now maybe this doesn’t travel too well, but I brought this all the way from the UK, a gift from my baby brother. May be it’s his idea of a joke, but damn me if this doesn’t taste like a lager too! A real Trojan Horse of a Best Bitter, with a prize bull on the bottle top. No prizes for the bull,  I’m gonna play it safe and go for a stout tomorrow!
