mR_fr0g (9252) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2015
Bottle at home pocked up from Sainsbury’s. Light amber / orange coloured pour with a lasting loose off white head. Aroma holds pronounced English yeast esters with berry and hedgerow, nutty grains and a little unrefined sugars. Flavour is composed of nutty grainy malts, a little stale, berry and earthy hop. Slight dry mineral quality to the water profile. Palate us semi sweet, dusty on the tongue. Finish is semi dry. Moderate carbonation.

ianwelby (1091) - SCOTLAND - APR 7, 2015
(Bought as a bottle of Sainsburys Yorkshire Bitter) Clear, lively amber beer with a thick frothy head and a slightly sweet, hoppy aroma. Flavour is a slightly odd mix. Initially a sweet, fruity hit with a strong taste of apples, the sweetness quickly making way for bitter hop and then ending up with a dry, malty finish.

spartakbarnsley (67) - St Petersburg, RUSSIA - DEC 25, 2014
Bottle from Tesco. This satisfying Yorkshire beer made a lovely accompaniment to some Wensleydale cheese on Christmas Day. Looks and smells like a bitter should - red and slightly malty. Light carbonation, notes of malt and dark fruits. Hops present but not dominant. Very nice bitter, would love to try on tap.
