Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Amber with thin head. Clear and fairly crisp, it’s certainly easy drinking and slips down the palate with ease. There’s some hops, some fruit, less malts but a few are evident.

Cask at the Wellington, Birmingham. Poured a crystal clear medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is light malt, light hop. The flavour is medium to light bitter with a smooth malt hop bitter palate and a short bitter finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. A superb session bitter and one of the best I’ve had.
