Cask at Euston Tap. Pours clear, vibrant gold with a small, cream head. Light cereal aroma with straw and grass hops. Nicely balanced flavor with dough and cracker malts then fairly strong earth hay hops. Light to medium in body with soft carbonation. Finishes quite dry with some caramel notes and citrus and grass hops. Solid

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clean lager looking beer with head telling that it’s not lager. Almost no aroma other than yeast, that was not very pleasant. Taste is in usual ale style hoppy and dry. I would categorize this as mild ale. I wish I would have this beer in tap next to office where I work at next summer, because this is nearly perfect summer drink.

The Three Pigeons in Halifax serves Ossett beers to a very high standard. This one is particularly fine.
