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!
