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.

A really nice bitter. I have some very happy memories of this stuff. My personal experience is that the bottles taste a lot better than cask. Great shame that it’s been made virtually extinct by Theakston’s Cool Cask which is a very average ale. I can’t find the bottles on anymore anymore :( and only know one pub with it on tap. I guess it’s not so popular because of it’s low alcohol content. Sometimes it’s good just to have a great tasting beer. It doesn’t have to always be about getting drunk quick. Too often breweries are replacing great light beers with super strength crap.

One of the greatest ales there are. It’s certainly one of my favorites if not #1. An excellent session beer when you can find it well kept.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2007 An excellent real ale cask bitter. I wonder if you guys who don’t like it really like English bitters at all??

My favourite session pint, floral and lemon and lime aroma. Rich malt palate with tangy fruit and a dry finish

Cask at Kays Bar, Edinburgh, Scotland. Clear golden, medium wjite head. Fruity aroma with notes of coconuts, floral hops. Medium bodied, low carbonation. Dry, medium bitterness.
