Dales keepers are hardy, hard working folk and this light copper, highly drinkable and very moreish best bitter with a lingering aftertaste, was conceived to sate their thirst.
Coverdale Gamekeeper is hand crafted with the finest floor malted Maris Otter Barley, Munich, Carapils and Crystal Malts with leaf hops and Wensleydale Brewery's own yeast strain.

pivnizub (10448) - Bochum, Porř, GERMANY - AUG 28, 2010
Cask (@ Watermill, Ings): Deep golden, smaller persistent white head; fruity nose with a light vinous touch, hops in the second row; mild to moderate bitter-sweet flavour; mild as well - fruity-hoppy finish. Unspectacular brew...

chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2004
Mid amber colour. Bready malt aroma. Clean palate with a dry finish. Good balance of malt and hops. A decent traditional style best bitter, quite full bodied for the alcohol content, but the overall effect is rather soft. Could do with a bit more grip. Cask (gravity), Cambridge Beer Festival.

SilkTork (5689) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2004
Bright bottled @ Thurrock Fest. Fresh notes (very short - the bell had been rung for last orders): "Light & refreshing bitter." Amber coloured best bitter. Fruit, nut, some toffee and a mild hop awareness. Pleasant nettle bouquet. Mmm - some nettles in the finish as well. Decent enough, but fairly average.
