COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
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 Brewery’s own yeast strain.

imdownthepub (15136) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2017
Cask conditioned at The Golden Lion Hotel, Leyburn, North Yorkshire. Gold with white head. There is a dry malty character to this, refreshing and fresh. There is a hint of lemon and some bitterness. Very pleasant.

dogbomb (1244) - ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2017
Bottle. Very pale straw coloured ale with a decent lasting white head. Nose is light lemon and grass. Taste is very light lemons and some grassy hops. Incredibly quaffable, light ale. Enough of a bite to it, to separate it from the lagers - but nothing worth writing home about.

Bottle - straw yellow with large white head. Citrus aroma. Good mouthfeel with slight tang at end. Citrus orange tasting - quite refreshing, ok beer.

johndoughty (5521) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2016
Bottle. Golden with a clear appearance. Small head and slightly bitter.Not a lot of body. Really doesn’t bring much to the party. File under easy to forget.

2.7
rauchbier (3926) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2016
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 (10927) - 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 (3784) - 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 it’s a bit on the thin side and a touch sharp. OK.

3.5
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
