Best Bitter

BJCP 11b

Overall Impression
A flavorful, yet refreshing, session beer. Some examples can be more malt balanced, but this should not override the overall bitter impression. Drinkability is a critical component of the style.
Comments

More evident malt flavor than in an ordinary bitter, this is a stronger, session-strength ale.

Ingredients
Pale ale, amber, and/or crystal malts. May use a touch of dark malt for color adjustment. May use sugar adjuncts, corn or wheat. English finishing hops are most traditional, but any hops are fair game; if American hops are used, a light touch is required. Characterful British yeast.
Commercial Examples
