The name comes from the Pitchfork rebellion of 1685 the last battle to be fought on English soil of the Civil War. A golden bitter with floral citric hop aroma. It has a hoppy predominate taste which is slightly sweet and fruity and leaves you wanting more.
Pitchfork was judged to be the Best Bitter of the Year in 1998 at the Great British Beer Festival and has been a finalist in the last three years.
Pale malt; Fuggles and Goldings hops.

Cask at Helsinki Beer Festival 2008. Deep golden color with small head. Honey and green apple in the aroma.Toasty, nutty, biscuity and appley flavor. Bitter, biscuity and appley finish. I like this beer in the bottle, but now it was in bad condition.

Cask at GBBF 2016. Golden colour bitter with a reasonably satisfying floral hop punch - probably at the upper end of scale for pre-craft beer bitter bitterness. A decent pint, quite smashable.

ianwelby (1109) - SCOTLAND - JAN 3, 2016
Hazy golden beer with a sort of mottled head of white and amber from the bottle. I assume this has arisen from sediment in the bottle or something. Faint grassy aroma. taste has the same quality, with some zesty citrus coming through from the hop. Other than a faint bitterness there isn’t much flavour which lingers. Nice though.

Pours a golden amber with a substantial white head which clings to the top of the drink throughout. Smell is grassy, floral, slight citrus and a sweetish malt. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter, nicely balanced. Not too watery and overall a nice lingering taste. Pretty decent bitter!
