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.

harrisoni (13565) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2009
Cask at GBBF 2009. The number of standard British beers I’d not rated sometimes frightened me. Clear gold with slightly yeasty aroma. Touch of tingly hop on end. a little dusty. Not too much malt, some caramel. Fine if erring on the bland side.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 12, 2009
On handpull at GBBF ’09, a golden amber with an off-white head. A generous floral malt aroma. The malty palate is quite earthy, dominating any hop flavour.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2008
A Mes rate. Cask at the Bree Louise. Golden brown. No head. Bland appley aroma. Similar flavour with a mineral note in the finish and some late bitterness. Boring below par bitter rather than best bitter if you ask me.

jfb (3758) - Freising, GERMANY - OCT 22, 2008
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2010 (draught) clear golden colour with a creamy white head. light aroma of banana, pale malts, bread dough and herbal hops. surprisingly dominant flavour of piney, floral hops, along with white bread, notes of banana and grainy pale malts. light to medium body with smooth carbonation and a light bitter finish.

Lubiere (9866) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 2, 2008
A golden amber ale with a thick off white head. A pleasant caramel malt aroma. In mouth, a light bodied ale with nice British hops, however, lacks in body and malt. Light resinous hops do come out later. On tap at JD Wetherspoon, Heathrow, Mid Nov. 2006. 2.69 pounds.
