This premium bitter has a distinctly malty character with a hint of nuttiness. The enhanced hopping rate recreates for many the good old days of a true Yorkshire bitter. Stallion gained the coveted award of Champion Beer at the 1994 York Festival.

Bottle from that shop in Malton. Appearance - bright amber with a decent head. Nose - oatmeal and light toffee. Taste - more of the same but a bit grainy. Palate - close to medium bodied with a crunchy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - a solid citizen if a bit grainy.

Clear amber beer with a filmy head. Light hop aroma. Flavour is initially quite bland but zesty fruit and sharp, bitter hop soon comes through. Itís not particularly interesting or special but itís tasty.

Cask (backlog). Hazy amber colour, small bubbly white head. Aroma is fruit, nectar, mild diacetyl and some sweet malts to it. Flavour is bready malts, mild citrus, nectar, wood and some resiny notes. OK apart from the mild diacetyl notes in the aroma.

Crisp and pleasant. Beige head, classic clear copper colour. Nice carbonation. Nothing disturbing in taste and aroma. Light bitter note, light woody and light fruity. And light in alcohol. So, light could be very good!

Bottled 500ml. -from www.beershop.hr Clear amber coloured, small to medium sized off-white head, mild hoppy caramel nose. The taste is basicly the same, herbal hoppy and caramel with toasted malt. Light grainy notes in bitterish finish. Nothing special here.

Nick Staffordís Stallion. Thanks Ogi! Ah, love the white horse thing, those things are cool (and bring back memories of long read Arthur C. Clarke books). Poured a coppery body with a medium sized off white head. Caramelly aroma mixed with some herbal hoppy notes both arenít that exciting and reminded me of Panadon - this cough syrup I had to take once or twice when I was a kid. And I never liked it. In any case, the taste goes on to be a mix of a mild, dry caramel background with a mild herbal-citric hop. Light chalky notes (noted before I spotted the horse, heh), clean, dry. Ok really, but as unexciting as they get, in my opinion at least.

Bottle shared at Great British Weekend (day 2) in Belgrade. Golden brown, foam. Mild sweet fruit, grape and raisin body, very sweet, not much hop or bittering. OK
