Draught. Pours clear gold with a small white head. Aroma and taste are pretty much the same; grass, biscuit, honey, and a touch of lemon. Bitter but balanced by a malty sweetness. Light body. Soft carbonation. Smooth, slightly sticky mouth feel.

jamesie1857 (2016) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2015
On cask at Black Bull Coniston - Clear gold body with a tight foamy white head. A flowery hop nose. Not as bitter as the standard Bluebird and sweeter. Tangy finish, but got a little samey as the drink went on.

boxofrane (2553) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2015
Cask at iron abbey. Pours hazy amber with a large white head, great retention. The aroma is clean, floral, a tad citrus. The taste has a nice grainy taste but has a sneaky bitterness in the finish. Great balance between the hoppiness and sweetness.

imdownthepub (14225) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2015
Cask conditioned at Fleetwood Beer Festival 15. Gold with white head. Sweetly balanced beer, full malts, quite fruity along with a balanced bitterness. Id forgotten how good Coniston Bluebird was but this was a good reminder. Liked it.

AshtonMcCobb (6407) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 31, 2014
On cask at the Black Bull. Appearance - golden with a proportionate head. Nose - oranges and grapefruit. Some biscuit. Taste - biscuit more prominent and still a bit orange note too. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - good beer and quite high bitterness given the style.

On tap in a pint glass. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of floral and lightly citrusy hops, pale and light caramel malts, and some dough and light spices. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Average texture. A solid beer but could be hoppier.
