COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular
The second of the Hartleys ales, Cumbria Way joined XB in 2001. Our former Head Brewer, Chris Helin invited tenants from our finest Cumbrian houses to select a new beer from a range of trial ales. The response was overwhelming Cumbria Way!
Cumbria Way takes its name from the 112km footpath which passes through the heart of the Lake District National Park and links the two historic Cumbrian towns of Ulverston and Carlise.
Hartleys Cumbria Way is a full bodied bitter beer with superb mouth feel of rich malt and hops complemented by complex aromas of spicy hop, malt and tart fruit. It has a long dry finish with citrus fruit notes Long dry finish with citrus fruit notes.

HogTownHarry (5984) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2013
August 21, 2013 - hand-pull cask at Market Porter as ... Something writes looking ending in "aud". Clear slightly amber gold with a small finishing creamy drool of off-white head. Odd mash up of light sweet syrup and crushed milkweed pods. Taste follows, not as sweet but not much bitterness or alcohol - astringent and still, with a lightning-quick finish. Next?

DruncanVeasey (6950) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2013
As...something Welsh and unpronounceable, The Miles Thompson (JDW), Kendal, Cumbria, 15/02/13. White-capped bronze again. Cornflake dipped in caramel; soft aniseed and orange hints. Vanilla afters. Good pinecone, alley, hedge, somewhat catty nose. Hint of chlorine. Very heavy on the biscuit and cereal flavours. Sweet amd uninteresting but had worse.

Rune (7355) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 31, 2013
Cask at Castle Hotel, shared with Finn. Clear amber coloured body, loose white head, lacework to the glass. Leafy hops to the nose. Fruit hoppy taste supported by caramel malts. Rounded bitter ending. Soft in the mouth. Straightforward Brit bitter (Manchester, 21.01.2013).

A clear, light brown bitter with a tight creamy head. It’s a well balanced light bitter with a dry finish.

A well balanced bitter, slightly dry tasting, a session like drink I think, doesn’t really stand out

Sweet and seductive. Treacle tart and jam, cherries to a crisp dry finish. Mmmmm. Nice one. Shame that was the last of it!
