Widely available locally (Hull) for obvious reasons. If I were sticking to one beer for the full night, this would be it. Lovely...

dynamiteninja (1539) - Richmond, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2014
Bottle. Fizzy yellow gold body. Medium white head with good retention. Lemon, grass, dough, hop, lager. Bittersweet and tangy. Dry finish. A bit reminiscent of homebrew.

wimpyjoe (4140) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2014
Bottle. Yellow-blonde in colour, next to no head. Has a pale ale character but a less than medium body that makes the already light hoppy fruitiness evident in its aroma even less so in taste.

Pale coloured bitter, taste is fairly typical of a Northern bitter, has a strange taste of gin to it too, not my kind of thing really

BlackHaddock (3885) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2013
500ml Bottle: BBD end of Jan 14. Poured into a UK pint sleeve during preparing a Sunday lunch in my hot kitchen: if found íSleck Dustí an idea thirst quencher in every sense. Light amber/golden body with an off-white head that started thin and fell away a bit too swiftly for my liking. Mild citrus notes in a fruity and floral hop nose. Nicely balanced taste: hop bitterness with a citrus bent blend well with the semi-sweet malts to give a pleasant refreshing easy drinking session ale. My first beer from these guys: Iíve got two more different bottles to try, looking forward to them.

500 mL bottle into a tankard. Clear golden with a fair head. Slightly acidic, mineral salt aroma (if that isnít a contradiction!). Tastes alright, bitter, almost zesty, acidic.

larsga (6240) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 23, 2013
Medium offwhite head doesnít last. Clear amber body with light carbonation. Herbal caramelly old books aroma with resiny papery notes. Resiny papery taste with herbal gooseberry notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, slightly fizzy mouthfeel. Dry grape and gooseberry aftertaste with resiny caramelly earthy notes. Really nice. Subtle and highly drinkable. (0.5l bottle, from Clarkes, Whitby.)

From bottle. Pours golden/amber, poor head retention. Citrus, floral and slightly resiny aroma. Good bittering. Good example of the style
