Rebadged as Devonshire Cat Bitter. BBBB of a medium calibre. Nothing exciting and borders on the tedious. Would be low on the list of things I would order again.
A decent beer. Colour is described as copper, but it is more brown with a decent head. Nose: caramel, bready malts and maybe some floral notes. Taste: the caramel and roasted malts are present, there’s maybe a bit of coffee in there and the typical Farmer’s barnyard earthy taste and a sharp bitter grassy finish. Good stuff.

On cask at the Yorkshire Bridge by Bamford.
Appearance - deep amber to brown with orange chinks. Good head that sticks around.
Nose - meaty, marmite and sweet malt.
Taste - sweet malt and more savoury notes. Burnt malt finish.
Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a finish that could be fresher.
Overall - a solid mild but not worth a revisit. Cimbasso (891) - - NOV 17, 2014
Sampled from the cask at the John Baird’s Yorkshire Beer Festival. This beer is a copper colour with a beige head. The aroma is mainly of toffee-like malts. There is some malt taste, but the flavours are dominated by floral hops, giving quite a dry finish. The taste is a little thin; not unpleasant, but not particularly memorable.

Half-pint, well-kept cask ale at The Blue Bell. Clear copper coloured body. A bubbly ring to the rim of the surface. Spotty lacing. Grass and bread on the nose. Mixture of nuts, caramel, and leafy hops to the taste buds. Bittersweet ending. Medium to thin bodied. Standard Brit bitter, more or less (York 11.07.2014). allmyvinyl (10613) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 25, 2014
