Potten Village Bike

Potton’s Village Bike claims to be a multi award-winning bitter from Bedfordshire so I was expecting great things and to be honest, I was a little disappointed.  This 4.3% ABV ‘Premium Ale’ is a light amber colour when poured with a thin head that dissipates very quickly.  The aroma is floral and slightly fresh – to my mind a little like elderflower.  The taste is quite disappointing.  As bitters go, this is very mild, biscuity, and lacking in a great deal of character.  It’s also quite flat – the epitome of those beers that used to be sold as ‘real ale’ in pubs owned by large national breweries.  Not my cup of tea, I’m afraid. Sorry!
