Brown colour with lasting head. Aroma and flavour have some sweet and nutty malts. Great session bitter. Don2711 (470) - - MAY 12, 2017
Amber. Toffee grain aroma. Biscuity and fair on palate. Lasting head. Respectable. The_Osprey (7885) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2017
Cask handpull at The Crosse Keys London as Nick Stafford’s Hambleton Stallion Amber, 4.2%. Dark amber, translucent, still with a big dense cream head that endures and leaves thick, full lacing. Looks like it has gone through a sparkler. Aroma is light bready malt, plain cheddar. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is thin watery malts, apple, bready, thin bitterness. It’s fine I suppose, but below average for style. Grumbo (2849) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2017

Decent malty bitter. mr_h (5434) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - APR 23, 2017

Handpull cask at the Pilgrims Progress, Bedford. Amber, clear, with a smooth off-white head. Light malty aroma with even lighter citrus and a bit of grass. Bittersweet taste, very gentle and heading to a slightly more assertive bitter at the end of the sip. Long bitter finish with orange oil in the finish. Tasty but certainly at the plainer end of the spectrum. Itstasty (92) - East Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2017
Cask @ Judsons wine bar, Pocklington, Yorkshire.
Orange/Amber with small off white head. Sweet malty nose.
Not overly bitter, balanced flavours of caramel sweetness with gentle hoppy tone.
Not too complex, but a tasty beer all the same. kustie (1156) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 4, 2017
Bottle. Copper color with off-white head. Aroma has caramel, malt and some grassy hops. Taste is malty with a bit bitter aftertaste. Flavors of grass, caramel, malt. thellgren (1030) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 26, 2016
0.5 l bottle from K-Citymarket Ruoholahti, Helsinki. Appearance is clear amber. I tasted this after the Yorkshire bitter from the same brewery. This has more malts and less bitter aftertaste, but quite bitter enough. AshtonMcCobb (6513) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 2, 2016
Bottle from that shop in Malton.
Appearance - bright amber with a decent head.
Nose - oatmeal and light toffee.
Taste - more of the same but a bit grainy.
Palate - close to medium bodied with a crunchy texture and a fairly good finish.
Overall - a solid citizen if a bit grainy.
