COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Previously a Summer seasonal

Lightfoot Bitter was created as a tribute to Lightfoot Brewery, Masham which we acquired in 1919. The label and pump depict the Lightfoot Brewerys celebrated cricket team and while this beer definitely wont 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.

gegwilson (3575) - 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.
