The best of Burton?

Another of my favourites out of a bottle is Marston’s Burton Bitter.  This weighs in at 3.8%, and is another excellent light and refreshing session beer.  The bottle notes declare it to be “an exceptionally clean tasting beer, combining malty, biscuity flavours with a delicate hop character and fine finish”.  I’d definitely go along with the clean tasting – though it did occur to me to wonder what a “dirty” beer would taste like.  I’m intrigued by the description “biscuity” – this adjective seems to be used a lot to describe the smell of the malt in a beer.  What sort of biscuit is it supposed to smell like?  Now I don’t habitually sniff biscuits, but even I know that there is a difference in the smells of different varieties – is it a ginger nut, fig roll, hob nob, chocolate digestive, jammy dodger?  I think the people who write these notes should be a bit more specific!

Anyway, to me the beer smells nicely of beer – I think I need a bit of tutoring on the description of the attributes of beers.  It’s a good bitter beer with a good bitter finish – very moreish – my kind of beer.  I just wish that there were some pubs near us where I could get the draught version.
