English-Style Bitter Beer
English-Style Bitter is a type of beer that is characterized by its medium to high hop bitterness and moderate alcohol content. English bitters typically have a reddish hue and range in colour from amber to dark brown.
English-Style Bitter is brewed using English Pale Ale malt, and English Hops. The English hops impart a floral, earthy flavour to the beer, while the English Pale Ale malt gives the beer a biscuity maltiness. English-Style Bitter is best served with English pub food, such as fish and chips, or shepherd’s pie. When served alongside food, English-Style Bitter enhances the flavour of the dish.
English-Style Bitter is also an excellent choice for pairing with strong cheeses, such as cheddar or stilton. The medium to high hop bitterness of English-Style Bitter cleanses the palate, making it an ideal partner for rich and flavorful dishes.
