Cask; Seasonal - April to September.
NOTE; Although a beer branded Game On is available year round, and uses the same pump clip throughout, there are in fact two different versions made at different times of year.
Whether your game is football, rugby, cricket, tennis, golf or any other sport for that matter, this cask ale is perfect for any sporting event. The winter league Game On (available Oct - Mar) has a more robust feel and is auburn in colour, while the summer league version (available Apr-Sep) is lighter with a pale, golden colour.

Cask conditioned at The Old Hall Hotel, Hope, Derbyshire. Gold with white head. Thinnish cereal malts from the start of this one, a little floral note, indistinguishable, maybe leafy. Just okay.

Half in the Tilley Stone Gateshead. Gold with a dense white head Demerara sugar and a whiff of summer compost. Honey, vanilla, cereal and sultanas. Dry biscuity finish. Nice sweet golden Summer ale.Better than I hoped, but the logic of brewing two different beers with the same name eludes me.

Cask at the Crown Rivers (JDW), Heathrow Terminal 5. Amber with a tight cream head; biscuity aroma; thin and watery with some light fruity malts; and a dry lightly hopped finish. Not very inspiring - hopefully I’ll find better on my trip to Boston.
