Coniston Brewing Bluebird Bitter (4.2%)

Pouring with a head that immediately dissipates to leave a light tracing around the glass, this beer has a very nice copper colour that looks very inviting.
The malting is so light as to be almost unnoticeable, just the merest hint of caramel.
You get a good hefty bitterness in the hopping with some good floral notes, but I fear this bottle is suffering from a yeast infection.
It perhaps ought to see the doctor and get a cream as there’s a rather nasty odour of damp pub floors and a heady yeast hit that I want to go away.
I’d like to try another bottle of this, as I think and hope that this could be far better.
