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.

I really liked this beer, brewed at Hambleton Ales, really good for a supermarket own label.

bersek (108) - Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2013
Pivo doporučené ke všem hospodským pokrmům. Mě osobně přijde jako klasické pivo svého druhu. Ničím extra neohromí a ničím extra neurazí.

Leighton (18694) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2015
Bottle at home in London - picked up at the M&S on Oxford Street. Pours clear gold with a frothy, white head. The nose holds bready malts, slight toffee, leaves. Light sweet flavor with simple, lightly toasted malts, further toffee, faint berries, orange rind, dirt. Light bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with some leafy hops, toasted grains and toffee, more brown bread. Not bad.

Bottle. Bronze with a small head. Malty at first but flavour soon disappears. Reasonable but run of the mill bitter.
