Stephen HarrisAcceptable27 Mar 2014 I know these kind of beers are very popular, but brown bitters with tangy Crystal malt and faded hops do not do it for me. (If I had been told it was GK IPA I would not have questioned it).

Shakespeares Ale & Cider House, Sheffield, South Yorkshire

Martin the MildmanGood17 Feb 2012 Red/brown bitter with a sweet, malty character and very little hop flavour. Has the flavour profile of a mild, but is billed as a bitter. My score 15/20.
