3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from the cask at the John Baird’s Yorkshire Beer Festival. Deep chestnut colour with tan foam leaving lots of lacing. Aromas of biscuit malts and toffee. The taste is very rich and malty with notes of fresh crusty bread and hazelnuts. Fruity, floral hops with no unpleasant astringent flavours. Hints of coffee and toffee. Long, earthy finish. An extremely drinkable Yorkshire bitter, which shows that a beer does not need to be strong to taste good. Highly recommended.
