One woman's ale journey

A beery boozy journey with delightful snacks along the way and a book in my hand.

Butcombe Gold Bitter

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.

Brewed by Butcombe Brewery, Bristol
4.4% ABV
