With a deep golden hue, I could tell straight away that this wasn't a traditional bitter. With such a fruity and hoppy smell, I knew I was in for something a little bit different.
It pours with quite a small head but what is there doesn't disappear. It has a surprisingly dry, crisp taste with a hint of a bitter citrus aftertaste. It's very fizzy but so refreshing that I could see myself drinking this on a sunny day. It's an unusual mix in between a bitter and a golden ale, but I liked it, although I still prefer the original Butcombe Bitter.
