COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
Also available bottled (see separate entry).

Our award winning Barnsley Bitter is brewed using the finest quality Maris Otter malt and English hops. Chestnut in colour, having a well rounded, rich flavour, it retains a lasting bitter finish. Brewed using yeast strains used in the 1850’s to brew ’Barnsley Bitter’.

imdownthepub (9623) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2007
Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Fest 07. Brown amber with slight white head. Darker roasted bitter than most with a fullish body, some nut character with quite a husky character, not enough on the finish for me but still decent enough. Can’t believe I haven’t rated this before.

weaselkenievil (1094) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2012
Cask at The Waters Green Tavern, Macclesfield. Clear orange gold with a medium off white head. I quite enjoyed this. Roasted malts and some bitterness, some fruity hops, hint of tobacco. I’d have this again.

Pyobon (860) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 6, 2011
(on tap) Hazy copper, white head. Aroma is treacle and tea. Medium body, well carbonated. Flavour has dark treacle and coffee with a nice bitter finish. Overall a nice beer with some richness and strength of flavour.

JorgeLee (1067) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2013
Cask in the Marquis of Granby W1. It’s just like watching Brazil (or the weather is, at least)! Dark brown colour, white foam. Very malty bitter, notes of toffee and nuts, quite bitter, fairly full taste given abv. Sweetish finish, which made it less moreish, I’d have preferred it a bit drier. A good Yorkshire bitter, if not entirely to my taste.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2007
Aroma is nutty and fruits off the yeast. Taste is similar with a bitter finish which doesnt suit the beer. I would guess that this is a brow ale.
