COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available in pasteurised bottle.
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.

tombyars (1352) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - DEC 30, 2011
First tasted this at the Printing Room, Glasgow in September 1997. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear copper red in colour with a thin white head. Sweet toffee note in the short aroma. Thin but creamy mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a digestive biscuit note with creamy toffee flavours. Good prickle of dusty hops present in the resiny aftertaste. Malt returns in the sweet finish with vinous oak cask notes. A decent session bitter.
