Cask, Occasional;
Fernandes has recently been bought out by Ossett Brewery. Great Northern is a fabulous beer, pale, citrus and very hoppy.

Cask gravity at Bricklayers Arms 2nd Annual Yorkshire BF 08. Gold with lasting white head. Good condition. That is a really good beer. Not a huge aroma, but the mouthfeel is good. Hop on finish is nice too. Decent strong gold beer.

A Mes rate: Gravicask at the Bricklayers.
Lovely golden yellow colour with an impressive white head for a gravity serving. About as good condition as you ever see from a cask. Great fruity hoppage, piney, almost creamy feel to it. Excellent bitter finish. Another cracker from Fernandes.
