The second of the Hartleys ales, Cumbria Way joined XB in 2001. Our former Head Brewer, Chris Helin invited tenants from our finest Cumbrian houses to select a new beer from a range of trial ales. The response was overwhelming Cumbria Way!
Cumbria Way takes its name from the 112km footpath which passes through the heart of the Lake District National Park and links the two historic Cumbrian towns of Ulverston and Carlise.
Hartleys Cumbria Way is a full bodied bitter beer with superb mouth feel of rich malt and hops complemented by complex aromas of spicy hop, malt and tart fruit. It has a long dry finish with citrus fruit notes Long dry finish with citrus fruit notes.

AshtonMcCobb (6498) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 4, 2017
On cask at the Red Dragon, Kirkby Lonsdale. Appearance - golden amber with a nice lacy head. Nose - strawberry straight up. Wasn’t expecting that. Light medicinal, like kids’ medicine. Somewhere between orange and strawberry. Taste - a lot more bland. Light orange and malt bag. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - solid. Nose was implying a much more exciting palate.

Cask at The Unicorn, Ambleside. Smooth; slight caramel; light bitterness; cardboard hops.

Cask at the Wellington Arms, Bedford.  Golden brown. Clear and fairly flat, with a thin foamy head. Good distinctive aroma, if a bit faint: wildflowers, biscuit, leather, caramel and honey notes. A simple bitterness, buffeted by floral sweetness, fades to a less pronounced but nonetheless tenacious bitter finish and aftertaste. Mouthfeel is uncommonly weak. Incredibly watery, lowering the enjoyment of the beer. A recipe at odds with itself, it won’t win any prizes (at least with Ratebeer) but it’s reasonable enough in its own way.

Cask. As Cwrwr... Something? Decent amber ale with a thick off white head. Nose is slightly peppery with lemons. Taste is lemons with a slight peppery spice too. Very nice.

MrTipple (4782) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2014
Aroma: cereals, bread malts. Appearance: clear gold, small white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: malty sweets quickly take over, light cereals, bread. Overall: unspectacular Golden Ale, lacks character and complexity. Pint at The Albert, Bowness-on-Windermere.

jmgreenuk (9300) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - APR 20, 2014
Cask at The Wellington, Birmingham. Poured a clear medium amber with a thin broken white head and some broke lace. The aroma is light malt. The flavour is medium to light bitter with a watery malt light hop bitter palate. Light bodied with soft carbonation. A bit of a disappointment.

Finn (7513) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 15, 2014
Castle Hotel, Manchester 21 Jan 13. Gylden. Lavt skum. Brukbar plommearoma. Vassen smak. Litt frukt.

kerenmk (4722) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 21, 2013
Cask at the Castle, Manchester, September 2013. Clear golden with w thin white head. Wort, sweet, ripe fruit aroma, sweet butter and a little fruity taste, medium bodied, long, oxidized finish. Drinkable but not good.

For the sake of the social interaction just numeral ratings and/or some highlighted attributes. Bit watery, cookies and nuts.

allmyvinyl (10480) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 15, 2013
Cask at The Black Horse, Preston. Pours golden orange with thin white head. Some citrus, but mostly nutty malt aromas. Taste has a light bitterness and medium sweetness. Finishes bitter. Pretty average session pint.
