Lightfoot Bitter was created as a tribute to Lightfoot Brewery, Masham which we acquired in 1919. The label and pump depict the Lightfoot Brewery’s celebrated cricket team – and while this beer definitely won’t give you the runs, it will score highly on the tastebuds.
This is a very pale, straw coloured ale, that uses a special malt to produce a pronounced ‘peach-like’ element to the aroma and palate, which is complemented by a floral hop character.
Brewed using a blend of traditional Fuggle, Golding and Bramling Cross hops.

Very easy drinkinging but ever so bland golden ale scores straight down the middle for me nothing exciting about it but in no way offensive.

Cask at the Black Bull, Penwortham. Pours clear pale gold, creamy white head. Aromas of lemon biscuit, cheesecake in fact. Taste is more of the same. Decent, if unexciting blonde.

On tap in Cowes. Vanilla and flowers uprfont with a bit of milk and banana. Very watery with a slighlty sweet taste. Very easy to drin but a bit too thiin offering some laves. Not bad at all.

McTapps (6954) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - AUG 9, 2014
On cask at the Cowes Week at the Cowes Marina. Pour out in a light yellow-golden colour with low head and thin body. Aroma of grains and straw. Taste of light hops, light malt, barley, straw, citrus and grains. Mild finish. Refreshing but not very complex. Average stuff.

VastActiv (7473) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 9, 2014
Cask at Gallow’s Bird, Espoo. Originally rated 31122011. Colour is clear golden with small white head. Casual bitter.

SaintMatty (7476) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 30, 2014
Cask (Black Bull, Masham) - Golden in colour. Apple, lemon and malt in the aroma. Lemon, biscuity malt and a hint of tea in the taste.

gegwilson (3784) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2014
Cask in the Mill, Stokesley. A golden ale with a white head. Almost no notable flavour to report what so ever. This is not too far from being a flat pint of lager. Pretty poor.

MissPxx (991) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2014
Smells of stale old pubs. Light Golden amber. Lovely sharp taste on the tongue with a lingering aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great beer enjoyed yesterday in a small traditional Liverpool hostelry. Haven’t come across this particular brew before.

kwik-lime (2012) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2013
Mild, light-tasting somewhat floral session beer with a little hint of pine. Fine, but boring.
