larsga (6323) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 23, 2013
Medium offwhite head. Clear amber body. Fruity earthy nutty aroma with meaty caramelly notes. Dry-sweet earthy caramelly meaty taste with fruity notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish fruity meaty resiny aftertaste with caramelly notes. Nice, but way too meaty. (0.5l bottle, from House of Trembling Madness, York.)

Bottle bought as alias Sainsbury’s Yorkshire Bitter. Nice aroma, biscuits and floral. Pours copper with a fairly tight head. Fairly strong malt and biscuit flavours, floral notes, a little honey and a good amount of bitterness, though could have done with a little more in my opinion. Otherwise good.

kidmartinek (3742) - austin, Texas, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Golden amber with a lasting white head. Bready aroma. Biscuity flavor with a very dry, strong bitterness. Again, more cahones than 5%. Aftertaste is nice and bitter and strong.

bhensonb (11534) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 16, 2013
Bottle as Sainsbury’s Yorkshire Bitter. Pours copper with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is floral and malty. Med body, almost. Flavor is mostly floral hop with some very nice light roasty malt. It’s dry. It’s bitter. It’s very good.

VintageViking (42) - - APR 5, 2013
Bottle. Pours pale amber, with a medium head. A lightish body; bitter, hoppy and quite dry.

SarkyNorthener (2399) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2013
Bottle. Copper colour small head. Caramel aroma. Taste is caramel and dry hops. This is a dry sweet beer. Quite nice. A little too watery and carbonated on the palate though.

dogbomb (969) - ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2013
Bottle. Gold with a nice white top. Strong caramel nose. Citrus and more toffee in the taste. Nicely rounded erring on the slight sweet malty side. Really pleasant drinkers drink.

foolberry (54) - New Malden, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2013
I really like this. Aroma is all caramel. Taste is deliciously balanced: bitter and yeast, more caramel. Rounded. Very very like the standard Black Sheep, but I think nicer. Will buy again. Nice surprise.

danlo (1338) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2012
500ml bottle. Clear golden amber colour, white head and bready malt aroma. Initial fizzy sourish dry , slight hoppy bitterness, layered against a malty sweetish taste. OK bitter.

wimpyjoe (4424) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2013 To read the method that this is produced under is interesting enough, as for a beer itself it is golden with a strong bitter character in both nose and taste and relatively smooth in its finish.
