COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
Changed from 3.6% to 3.8% in 2004.
Previously brewed under contract at John Smiths at Tadcaster due to lack of capacity at Masham. Production returned to Masham in 2009.
This fine, golden coloured beer has a full flavour that lingers pleasantly on the palate. With a good bitter-sweet balance this beer has a robust hop character described as citrus and spicy. It’s a refreshing and very satisfying pint – noted for the aroma of its Fuggles and dry hopping strain Golding to add to its characteristic Theakston aroma.

northropfrye (2315) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 5, 2013
Cask at Blackfriar, Glasgow. Really disappointing ale. Amber colour, but not much aroma, and the taste is just slightly sweet and kind of tastes watered down. Weak.

fiammanghilla (651) - Genova, ITALY - JUN 17, 2013
Spina @ Rose & Crown Ambrata con schiuma chiara, finissima, pannosa e persistente. All’apparenza davvero bella, in bocca risultà però un pò slavata, comunque più che bevibile...

ogivlado (5900) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 5, 2013
On tap at Ljubljanski Festival Piva, Slovenia. Amber coloured, small white head, light caramel in the nose. Mild toasted malt, caramel and light fruity with discreet hoppy touch in the finish. Watery also.

Dommod2011 (702) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2013
Sneaky half at Fairlawns, some corporate hotel for people who think they’re rich but clealy aren’t. I quite enjoyed it, served too cold, but oddly appealing. I made a tasteless joke about smelling menstruation. Oh, the shame. Bish?

jjsint (924) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2013
When served well, surprises you. Basic bitter, very flavourful - simultaneously fruity and medicinal. A surprise bitter/sour twinge on the way down. A taste of history.
