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 (13828) - 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.
