Lightfoot Bitter was created as a tribute to Lightfoot Brewery, Masham which we acquired in 1919. The label and pump depict the Lightfoot Brewery’s celebrated cricket team – and while this beer definitely won’t give you the runs, it will score highly on the tastebuds.
This is a very pale, straw coloured ale, that uses a special malt to produce a pronounced ‘peach-like’ element to the aroma and palate, which is complemented by a floral hop character.
Brewed using a blend of traditional Fuggle, Golding and Bramling Cross hops.

gegwilson (3207) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2014
Cask in the Mill, Stokesley. A golden ale with a white head. Almost no notable flavour to report what so ever. This is not too far from being a flat pint of lager. Pretty poor.

Smells of stale old pubs. Light Golden amber. Lovely sharp taste on the tongue with a lingering aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mild, light-tasting somewhat floral session beer with a little hint of pine. Fine, but boring.
