Beer #3283 is a bitter brewed by Ridgeway in Oxfordshire, England. An improvement on the other two I’ve had, not that they were bad, they were good. This is better, coming across like an English bitter though it doesn’t hide…

Beer #3279 is a bitter brewed by Insel-Brauerei in Germany. My first from this German brewery and not the last either as I’ve got two more of theirs in the fridge. Moderate bitterness, mostly dry but a touch of sweetness,…
