Brakspear (at Marston's Wychwood) Bitter

3.40% ABV.

A session beer. Amber in colour with a good fruit, hop and malt nose. The initial taste of malt and the well hopped bitterness quickly dissolves into a predominantly bitter-sweet and fruity finish.

We have tried this beer 43 times.

We have given this beer an average score of Acceptable to Good.
