COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Seasonal;
A fresh, light and bright Yorkshire Pale Ale with a stubborn hoppy kick!

wimpyjoe (3528) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2014
Cask @ The Railway, Hebden Bridge. Golden with a creamy head. Has a light drinkable session texture with a light bitterness and a very small fruitiness in its aroma.

niquillis (812) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2014
On cask at General Elliot, croft, Cheshire. Pours golden with white head. Looks the part but tastes like canal water with a few hops chucked in. Dreadful ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HampshirePhil (137) - Portsmouth/London, Hampshire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2013
500ml bottle - Good colour scheme on the label and lovely etched bottle with various berries on a vine. Frothy head and sprayed/overflowed upon opening of the bottle. Soft pale ale taste, no real aroma or palate.

StueyD (1115) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2013
A mod golden amber coloured ale with a frothy white head. A zesty citrus fruit aroma is matched by a light malt nose, there's so much lemony citrus fruit that it smells like a Shandy, but in a good way! Medium dry mouthfeel. A bitter, pithy citrus fruit hop taste to start, lemon and grapefruit peel, and a touch grassy. Then the malt comes through, balancing the flavour with a mild biscuity sweetness, but never overpowering. The citrus hop dominates into the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rune (7777) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 14, 2013
Full pint, handpulled cask at The Old Bar, Leeds University. Clear amber coloured body. Remaining, low, white head. Caramel on the nose. Malt-fruity flavours, mainly caramel offset by herbal hops. Decent bittersweet finish. Not that thin on the swallow. Ok Brit bitter with session qualities (Leeds 30.06.2013).

Samjallen (10) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2013
Read a review describing this having the smell of Vomit. After that, vomit was all I could smell. Vomitty smell and Vomitty aftertaste. Like when you've been a little bit sick in your mouth and politely swallowed it down. That kind of vomit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maeib (8594) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2012
Cask conditioned handpump Veritas Leeds 11/06/12. A golden beer with a big white head and lacing. Vomit, cream and pepper in the nose. Pretty much replicated in the mouth. This is odd and not at all endearing. Dry. Biscuity. Really unpleasant in the nose and not much better in the mouth.

dynamiteninja (1472) - Richmond, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2012
Cask conditioned at The Fox & Hounds, West Witton. Gold body. Medium white head. Doughy, citrus, hoppy. Bittersweet with a bitter finish. Watery palate.

imdownthepub (9991) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2012
Cask conditioned at The Royal Sun, Begbroke, Oxon. Gold amber with white head. Quite a malty beer, grainy with a bready background flavour, bitter, long on the palate. Not bad.
