The first of a new International edition. I am currently in Cambridgeshire.

Cambridge Bitter

Pours a deep mahogany colour with a thin white head. Very little carbonation visible in the glass.

First Sip: Sweet caramlly malts with a slight citrus flavour, followed by nice mild, unassertive hops bitterness that lingers for some time. Mouth-feel is medium with a nice carbonation tingle on the tongue.

Ooh yeah. This is the proper stuff; a nice English bitter. This is the sort of brew I could quaff for quite some time.** This is a very yummy beer. It tastes good from the fridge, and tastes better when the chill has left it, and it leaves a nice warming feeling in the belly. Even the beer-burp is nice.

Good grief. Did I really use the word "unassertive" to describe the hops?

The church on the bottle label is very appropriate. Something about the name "Cambridge" inspires an old city with many stone churches. :)
