Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Golden with a creamy head. Has hops and a small sweetness in its nose. Fairly easy drinking for its strength with a hint of spice, but it’s certainly in the background. Has some ginger in its nose.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On cask at the Stockbridge Tap.
Appearance - golden with a proportionate head.
Nose - flowers and distinctive ginger notes.
Taste - honey with more ginger and a fresh citrus finish that still retains some of the honey.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry but spicy finish.
Overall - good beer. Any more ginger and it would become one dimensional but it’s just subtle enough.
