UPDATED: MAY 1, 2016 A very typical example of a Yorkshire Bitter, severed at cellar temperature in the Golden Slipper in York. A dark bitter with bitter muddy hops and a treacle finish. Not at all bad.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) on the 20th June 2015. Cask, handpump dispense. Opaque dark amber in colour with a thin white head. Fruity green apple noted in the short hoppy aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt lends a digestive biscuit base with notes of green apple and gooseberry fruit. Slight hoppy aftertaste gives a lingering resiny note in the palate. Hops noted in the dry finish with hints of weak fruit just about detectable. A poor session bitter.
