Hambleton Ales are situated on the bank of the River Swale, North Yorkshire. This ale has a malty character with a hint of nuttiness from the crystal and roasted barley. Balanced with both Northdown and First Goldengs Hops this ale is a true Yorkshire bitter.

Rune (9661) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2012
500ml bottle bought at a M&S store in Leeds. Firm, off-white head with bubbles and that laces well. Next to clear, brown coloured body. Malt accented smell with hints of fruits. Malt-fruity taste including pale and brown malts, nuts and dark fruits. Bittersweet tail. Soft in the mouth. Nice (Bodington Flats, 09.07.2012).
