COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
Changed from 3.6% to 3.8% in 2004.
Previously brewed under contract at John Smiths at Tadcaster due to lack of capacity at Masham. Production returned to Masham in 2009.
This fine, golden coloured beer has a full flavour that lingers pleasantly on the palate. With a good bitter-sweet balance this beer has a robust hop character described as citrus and spicy. It’s a refreshing and very satisfying pint – noted for the aroma of its Fuggles and dry hopping strain Golding to add to its characteristic Theakston aroma.

pleispleis (745) - Maccagno, ITALY - JAN 12, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2020 spina, Bitter un po’ insipida ed anonima ma comunque da bere a litri senza problemi. Bevuta a pranzo con un tagliere di salumi, formaggio e una zuppa. @ PaneVino beer food & win, San Rocco Premia. 11.01.20

iains1 (332) - - AUG 23, 2019
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2019 Vanilla fudge taste with just a hint of dough and malts. Low on bitterness which would have been nice due to the sweetness. First time I have tried this as always avoided in the past. Inoffensive but ultimately one dimensional.

Salian (824) - Sale, Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2018 Reasonable old school bitter, caramel malts, sweet, fruity with a little hoppiness and a little dryness to finish. Not bad.

Rune (18193) - Tromso, NORWAY - OCT 15, 2018
Half pint, cask ale at Queen's Hotel. Nitro creamy head blanketing the glass. Deep copper coloured body. Mid-dry leafy hops on the nose. Light toffee to the taste buds joined by bread and earth. Bittersweet finish. Easy to drink. Pleasing. (Swansea 30.09.2018).
