[cask at the Phoenix, York] Clear nut-brown bitter with a large, tight white head. Bready malt on the nose, something mildly peppery. Taste is a straight up bitter – slightly sweet bready caramel malt, before the snappy dry grass component on the finish. Nothing wrong with this whatsoever – a great Yorkshire bitter [10062012]

A quick sniff and taste puts this in the average group. Solid amber beer with a very small whitish head and minor spots. Warm and dry caramel on the sweet side with an interesting hoppy aroma that I’m not used to. It’s not amazing or weird just a bit different. Mellow citrus nose - pretty plain. This tastes pretty plain as well and leans on the bland side. Dull caramel and a notable spice, grass, maybe the fruit is orangy. Good carbonation and a flat bitter finish. Booooring.

500ml brown bottle. Deep gold in colour, nicely formed tall white head with a rocky top.. Nose has grains, light caramel, light grass and orangey hop. Taste - good UK type malt up front, citrus and grass flavours. Some late hops in the back of the throat. Light in body, soft carbonation. Decent.

reebtogi (4396) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 14, 2012
500ml bottle pours a pale golden amber color with a 2 finger white head that settles slowly revealing a nice thin lacing on the glass. Aroma is grassy with some citrus and mild caramel malts. Taste is grassy and citrus hop bitterness which is nicely balanced with a little malty sweetness. Unbelievably tasty at this alcohol level. Another well done brew by Wold Top.

Nice appearance. Buttery nose with a tiny bit of pine. Taste is soapy and slightly sour. Not really something I’d visit again.

50 cl bottle @ chriso.
Rated on 20110722.
Pours clear orange color with light head. Aroma of fruits, resin, malts and grass. Flavor of fruits, resin and apple. A bit acidic and mouth-drying. Nice.

Bottled (from Beers Of Europe). Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is floral, wooden and mildly earthy. Flavour is fruity, yeasty, mildly doughy and also has some grassy notes. Floral and nicely fruity aftertaste.
