Cask at the Yorkshire Terrier. Pours darkly ruddy orange with a tan head. Aroma of dark fruit, slight roast malt. Full bodied or nearly. Flavor is lighter dark fruit with maybe a hint of chocolate. Or not. Finishes slightly on the sweet side with enough hop to keep it tasty. Nice.

A deep ruby beer with a nice thick head, that invites to have another one. On a rainy day with a pie.

Cask@Blue Stoops Chesterfield. Dark ruby with wonderful long lasting head and a coffee,fruity taste to die for. For this type of beer you would be hard pressed to find one much better. At 5.4 it can hardly be described as a session beer,but that,s exactly what it is. You could drink this stuff all night and still want more. The landlord says it will be returning soon. Tomorrow wouldn,t be soon enough. Well looked after and a joy to drink.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2012 Perhaps my favourite Yorkshire beer. Have not had yet in August, but I have imbibed this beauty enough to know it by heart.
On cask whenever I can. Ruby red with a nice thick head. Akin to having liquified fruits and nuts. A champion beer of Britain with good reason!
