Brewed within the City walls of York, and developed in conjunction with Castle Howard, the setting for the evergreen television series "Brideshead revisited", this premimum bitter has a smooth and creamy malt flavour against a background of fruitiness leaving a lingering, pleasent after taste. It is guaranteed to the very highest standards.

harrisoni (17352) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2008
Bottle at Chris_o Pre GBBF Shindig 08. Gold/copper, thin lasting beige head. OK bitter, bit malty, bit too sweet and frankly not really very well integrated, which surprised me as York is normally a very good brewer.

bman1986 (173) - Broadstairs, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2008
Bottle from York brewery: Fruity with a hint of caramel, a little bit like a lager, maybe too much carbonation. Overall enjoyable but not exciting in any way.

Bottle. Deep gold colour with next to no head. Malty aroma with a touch of dry hops. Flavour had a touch of caramel with an earthy, dry finish. Enjoyable.

Bottle. Poured a good bright gold colour with a thick white head. Very fruity in the nose and orangey fruitiness, in the taste. A good session beer.
