Handpull cask at the Ring O'Bells, Kendal. Dark gold with a small white head. Light hop aroma of limeade, hay, notes of lemongrass. Taste is bittersweet with vinous and gummy notes and a fruity bitter finish. More grassy flavour in the aftertaste. A classic taste. john44 (3402) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2017

August 2016 - Cask handpull at GBBF 2016, as ’Coniston Bluebird Bitter’. Golden orange, clear, still, small off-white head. Aroma is bready, touch of sulphur, well trodden carpet. Body is quite light with tingly carbonation. Taste is thin bready malt, fairly watery, carpet mustiness. I guess it was good for its time, but I’ve had many bitters I prefer.
