Cask from The Gold Cape, Mold. Pours a clear gold colour with a thin white head. Good lacing right down the glass. Aroma is hoppy, and fruity. Taste is slight grapefruit and hoppy. Pretty good session ale but not fantastic.

AshtonMcCobb (2465) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 6, 2013
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.

niquillis (812) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2013
