COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Filtered, pasteurised and force-carbonated. Available in kegs and cans.
Originally brewed by Samuel Webster in the Fountain Head Brewery in Halifax. Brewed at John Smiths from 1996. In 2003, the Websters brands were acquired by a company called Silvan Brands, about whom it has proved impossible to obtain any information other than that their registered office is in Edinburgh. The beers have been brewed under contract at Thomas Hardy Burtonwood since 2004.

RoyceH (1196) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - JUN 25, 2006
Dark gold colour, white head, lasts well, laces a little bit. Not much aroma, what there is is hoppy, some toffee. Flavour is watery, very watery, little bit of hops. Bitter aftertaste, just. Not nice at all.

harrisoni (13215) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2006
500ml can. I’ve had this several times, but not really since I was a student in nightclubs. It hasn’t changed at all. Deep clear copper colour with a lasting off white head. Slight hop aroma. Some caramel. Absolutely no flavour at all in the mouth with some dusty hop and caramel on end. Dull tasteless bitter. And people complain that they live in Oklahoma

Gethinbeer (2114) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAY 7, 2006
From can. Looses head very quickly, but has a clear rusty appearance. The beer has a bitter taste but is very watered down. A little to gassy for me to. Pretty bland bitter ale however it is cheap. I am amazed the name Yorkshire bitter has been allowed on this can!

Presents well but ultimately thin, mostly watery taste. Bland, bland, bland. A terrible example of English beer.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2005
Mid to dark amber with cream head. Faint malty aroma. Thin, watery taste with a hint of sweetness and a trace of hops. Very ordinary beer. Pity I bought a four-pack at Tesco.

omhper (19192) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 16, 2005
Canned. Copper colour, creamy head. Caramel aroma. Sweet, with simplistic malt character and light body with some papery malt, but near no hops. Low-medium bitterness.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2005
Canned. Slightly malty. Quite sweet and very weak. This is really bad and boring.

Mads Langtved (2245) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2005
Amber, golden. Metallic aroma. Metallic finish. Some bitterness as well. Not very good. Could use some more power.

Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 7, 2005
An amber beer with a small orange head. The aroma is spicy with a sharp hoppyness. The flavor is sweet and very dry hoppy in the end.

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 24, 2005
Reddish amber colour with small off-white head. Slightly sweet malty aroma with hints of hops. Flavor again has some sweetness combined with a bitter finish.
