Amber colour, white head that does not last long. Aroma is not very intensive, of malt and fruit. Medium bitterness. Light body, lively carbonation (too high for me). Average.

Dark-gold beer with a thick, frothy head. Light aroma of caramel and toasty malt. Flavour is an initial tangy-sweet hit. Quite dry and bitter in the finish. Quite drinkable.

Bottle. Deep, clear copper with a long lasting small white head and good lacing. Aromas of subtle caramel and a hint of lemon blossom.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A good pale ale in the British pub tradition. Tart and dry but this one has a great creamy sweet aroma. Taste the hops subtly. Tastes really fresh and paired well with grilled chicken and spinach. Comparable to other fine British pale ales.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml Bottle: BBD end of Jun 14, poured into a UK pint sleeve at home on 20 Oct 13.
Prefer a well kept cask Landlord to the bottle, but this was OK.
Light brown to light amber in colour, clean and clear: on top a decent white head than stayed.
The smell was a mix of light malts and fruity hop notes, as was the taste. Semi-dry feel to the whole pint although the malts do try and add some sweetness.
Honest and fine, a good bottle of Pale Ale.

Amber colour, good thick foamy head. No shortage of taste, pretty similar to Theakston’s old pecliar, with more of a citrus taste to it at the end of each sup. As included in hampers from top North Yorkshire bakery "Elizabeth Botham’s" of Whitby.
