Bitters are a distinctly English style of pale ale marked by extra hops. In color they tend to fall between a golden booze and a cherrywood finish. Carbonation is generally low in these beers and ABV generally lands between 3% and 6.5%. Historically, they are cask conditioned, but in contemporary times, bottled Bitters are widespread.
Common Bitter varieties include IPA, Best Bitter, Premium Bitter, and Golden Ale.
