Coniston Brewing Co. – Bluebird Bitter – 4.2%
From the Coniston Brewing Co. in Coniston comes Bluebird Bitter at 4.2%. De-capping gives an aroma of dried fruit, malt and citrus with a hint of flowers. The beer is bottle conditioned, blonde in appearance, with a massive creamy frothy head. The beer is bitter, as the name suggests and quite tasty with a hint of spice to the aftertaste. Unfortunately, the beer is slightly watery in body, but the bitterness makes up for that. Not my favourite style of ale, but decent enough.
