Rebadged as Devonshire Cat Bitter. BBBB of a medium calibre. Nothing exciting and borders on the tedious. Would be low on the list of things I would order again.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A decent beer. Colour is described as copper, but it is more brown with a decent head. Nose: caramel, bready malts and maybe some floral notes. Taste: the caramel and roasted malts are present, there’s maybe a bit of coffee in there and the typical Farmer’s barnyard earthy taste and a sharp bitter grassy finish. Good stuff.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On cask at the Yorkshire Bridge by Bamford.
Appearance - deep amber to brown with orange chinks. Good head that sticks around.
Nose - meaty, marmite and sweet malt.
Taste - sweet malt and more savoury notes. Burnt malt finish.
Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a finish that could be fresher.
Overall - a solid mild but not worth a revisit.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from the cask at the John Baird’s Yorkshire Beer Festival. This beer is a copper colour with a beige head. The aroma is mainly of toffee-like malts. There is some malt taste, but the flavours are dominated by floral hops, giving quite a dry finish. The taste is a little thin; not unpleasant, but not particularly memorable.
