COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Generally only available bottled (not bottle conditioned). Has been seen occasionally in cask.
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.

rauchbier (3559) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2003
Bottled. Copper coloured, initial head drops straight off and moderate condition does little to help. Low aromas of caramel and hops, but hops develop nicely in the mouth along with some toffee. Finish is dry and hoppy. Nice undemanding session beer.
