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.

Rune (16796) - 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).

cartwright (5) - - SEP 8, 2018 does not count
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2018 Bought from the plough in bruntingthorpe, Leicestershire. One of the finest ales Iv had the pleasure of drinking. Very smooth. And has extraordinary flavours that many ales don’t contain. Very appealing and extremely drinkable. Will be purchasing again: perfect on a Sunday. It’s a Sunday drink.

thellgren (1497) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 7, 2018
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2018 Pint draught @ The English Football Club, Milano (April 23, 2018). Amber, clear, no head. Great complicated taste - malts, hops and something else... Funny, I had to go to Italy to have a decent bitter.
