Yubby Review

It's not that common to come across bitters on the craft beer scene these days, perhaps because they have the reputation of being synonymous with dark, dank pubs full of one or two regulars, drinking John Smiths or Tetleys until they roll home after last orders.

Yubby bottle and pour

A good bitter though is delightful. And this is a good bitter. Hailing from Yubberton Brewing Co. in the Cotswolds means it comes from the heart of England too, making it the place to create such a brilliant English bitter.

Yubby: Taste Test

Malty on the nose which is unsurprising being a bitter, but it's a theme that is carried right through the whole taste. The pour is a delightful dark amber colour and like all bitters there's hardly any carbonation, making it a very smooth drink.

The slightly fruity and sweet flavour which balances well with the hops to leave a bitter but not unpleasant taste and an aftertaste which takes me back to the first few pints I had in the pub with my Dad when I was (just) old enough to drink.

It's nothing special in terms of the flavour or style, but it's very special in terms of tradition and heritage, which is something that will always be appreciated.

Yubby: Bottle Notes

Very traditional brown bottle and style of label that ties in nicely to the style of beer.

Yubby bottle

I love the red label with the white detail, it makes it a very simple but effective design with the Cotswold scene on the bottom and the hops around the edges at the top.

Where To Buy Yubby Bitter?

If you want to experience this brew and - hopefully - have the same nostalgia trip that I did, you can go to Brew Republic and get a load in for just £2.89 a bottle. Bargain.
