Courage Directors Bitter – Wells & Young (ENG)

Courage Directors was originally brewed exclusively for the Directors of the Alton brewery, but following public demand, the beer was made available to the public.” I’m glad it was as this was one one my favourite cask beers when visiting England (from Cornwall). Of course, now it’s available around the world.

This classic English pint certainly travels well and the bottled version compares well with the cask brew. A rich copper brown in colour, it’s smooth on the palate, with a slightly sweet, malty taste, balanced with the bitterness of hops. The Directors knew what they were doing when they kept this one to themselves. If you’re ever in the UK, try this one on the hand-pump, you won’t regret it.
