When bottling real ale from a kit e. g. Woodfords Sundew and bearing in mind real ale should not be fizzy, is it best not to add sugar to the bottles?

Although you may not want a fully carbonated ale, you do want some condition which will help lift the flavours in your mouth so you need to prime bottles with a small amount of sugar otherwise you will get a completely flat and lifeless beer.
