50cl bottle @ Watson’s Bistro, Conwy. Pours golden with some head - I was expecting this to be more malty. It’s really in the pale ale to golden ale part of the spectrum though I suppose Bitter is a broad and all-encompassing category. It delivers some grapefruit and pale malt on both nose and taste. It’s a golden ale by numbers in fact.

Taste comprises summer fruits, grass, a little hop presence. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, some bitterness in a dryish finish. Ok.
