Keg. Also available bottled.
Using a recipe from 1884 found in the archives of the original brewery in Ilkley, this distinctive Victorian Pale Ale was designed as the perfect accompaniment to food, being light and crisp. We have added our modern slant using Australian and American hops and the result is a beer for any occasion. Available in cask and bottle Hops: Calypso (USA), Stella (AUS) & Nelson Sauvin (NZ) Food Match: Yorkshire Lamb Burger, Teacakes

yngwie (14338) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle. It pours a pale golden body under a small, white head. The aroma is citrusy and piney, with a little cheesy touch. Some pale malts. It’s medium bodied and quite dry, with a pleasant carbonation level. A light malty touch in the flavor, bitter, and quite fruity. Lasting finish. Superbly boring, but easy drinkable. Sort of quenching too. 141108

Big white head. Clear pale yellow body with light coarse carbonation. Fruity strawy resiny aroma with herbal notes. Aroma is very light, but good. Dry strawy resiny taste with herbal notes. Mid-bodied. Sharpish mouthfeel. Dry, salty grape and resin aftertaste with dusty strawy notes. Nice, drinkable, perhaps a little low on flavour. (0.5l bottle, from Meny Oslo City.)
