Bitter and Twisted

Bitter and Twisted is a blonde ale brewed by the Harviestoun Brewery of Hillfoots Village, Scotland. According to the label, B&T was originally brewed in the company of a plucky mouse named Harvie, who has been memorialized on the beer's label and cap.  B&T comes in 500mL bottles and contains 4.2% alcohol.
The beer pours a lightly carbonated cloudy gold colour. It's topped with a cloudy white head. B&T has a slightly peppery aroma with some caramel sweetness. The flavour begins with caramel notes, gentle maltiness, and a touch of fruitiness. This shifts to a more bitter flavour profile on the back end. It's nicely hopped without going overboard.

Bitter and Twisted is apt to appeal to a range of beer enthusiasts.  It is extremely sessionable, but with a nice flavour. I'd like a bit more body and a bit more booze, but I'd definitely buy it again.

Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
