Bitter

From ARRSEpedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Generic name for English ale-type Beers, brewed with malted barley and hops, and using a top-fermenting yeast. Ranging from the sublime Fuller's London Pride to the ridiculous (Caffrey's for example), it may well be the original model for the 'Nectar of the Gods'.

Broadly speaking, bitter can be categorised as southern bitter and northern bitter.
