Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. A brighter looking amber ale with a small creamy head. The aroma is more sugary than fruity but the latter aspect is slightly more evident in its taste. Easy to drink.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at The Wellington, pours a clean copper with a small white head. Aroma of English hops and bready malt upfront, with some herbal notes further back. Flavour brings out English hops, bready malts and some light toffee notes. Smooth and lightly bitter body. Highly drinkable stuff, but nothing overly exciting.
