Cains Best Bitter

While at Al’s of Hampden, I ordered a glass of Cains Best Bitter. The beer pours a caramel color with a lofty creamy head that is solid and lingers well after the pour is complete. The aroma is malty with a solid caramel base and a slightly bitter hop accent. The taste is creamy and smooth with lots of sweet malts on the front end. There is a slight bitter finish with nice hop accent that leaves the mouth dry. The alcohol content is not posted online, but I would guess it to be around 4.5% ABV. I cannot say that I am well versed in English bitters, but this beer was top notched and had an excellent flavor. I will attempt to order more bitters in the future, especially if it is brewed by Cains.
