Our summer ale is a refreshing, light, straw coloured beer with hints of caramel and citrus combined with a perfect balance of malt and hops.
The lake conceals a legendry sunken village - a hungry beggar was refused alms in all but one cottage and damned the village thus: "Semer Water rise, Semer Water sink, and cover all save this lile house, that gave me meat and drink."
Hand crafted by our award winning brewer in the picturesque Yorkshire Dales with the finest floor malted Maris Otter Barley, Carapils Malt, leaf hops and Wensleydale Brewerys own yeast strain.

Bottle, from Co-op, Hessle. Pale gold, thin but lasting white head , moderate condition. Slightly peppery bohemian hop notes in the nose, with a low fruity maltiness. Soft in the mouth with a little lemony citrus, a muted chalky mineral note and a very low infected yeastiness. Finish is citrusy and hop bitter.

ManVsBeer (9759) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2014
Cask @ Fox & Goose, Hebden Bridge. Yellow-blond with a thin head. Has a malt-hop balance with the latter slightly more dominant and a very lemon citrus tastes.

gegwilson (3627) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2014
Cask in the Sun Inn, Pickering. Blond with a white head. Some OK fruity hop flavour to this but its a bit on the thin side and a touch sharp. OK.

DandyLion (518) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2013
Gravity @ Galtres festival. Golden coloured. Very pale. It's nicely hoppy without being overbearing. I imagine I could drink a lot of this if not at a festival. It is quite a lagery blonde ale that seem to be ten a penny these days. It's OK if not exactly earth shattering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear gold beer. Little white head. Light semi crisp palate. Lagerish malt with a subtle but odd smoky note. A little light orange and peach hops before the malt turns creamy. Crisp snappy minerally finish. Its all right, refreshing and and crisp. Good session beer on a hot day.

Cask (handpump) at Great British Beer Festival, day 4 on 5 August 2011. Gold. Very pale. One of a huge number of dry, vaguely citric blondes at the festival. Easy drinking. Could do with more hop punch. Respectable but rather unremarkable.

FatPhil (15575) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 29, 2011
Cask (GBBF2011, Friday)
Farty aroma, vegetal. Watery, thin, and dull. Little finish. Sulfury and minerally in the mouth. And nothing but sulfury hop in the finish. Dissapointed to say the least.
