Dales keepers are hardy, hard working folk and this light copper, highly drinkable and very moreish best bitter with a lingering aftertaste, was conceived to sate their thirst.
Coverdale Gamekeeper is hand crafted with the finest floor malted Maris Otter Barley, Munich, Carapils and Crystal Malts with leaf hops and Wensleydale Brewery's own yeast strain.

mt_hall (188) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2014
Bottled. Clear ruby, copper colour with a small, off-white head. Aroma is sweet toffee malt to start with - and then wet straw! Similar sweetness at the start in the mouth, but finish isn’t too pleasant - dry and acidic. Not great.

Cask at Crown Inn, Manfield, N. Yorkshire. Hazy pale brown. Spicy hops covers mild milk chocolate. Light-medium bodied with soft, vital mouthfeel. Freshly hoppy with plenty of depth in the malt department. Mildly roasty with long balanced bitterness. Lovely drinkability.

Bottle. Bronze beer with a quickly disappearing head. The aroma is roasted and quite well hopped, and the flavour is smooth, plainly hopped and roasted. Overall a very average beer.
