Acorn Yorkshire Pride
50cl bottle from Morrisons, Bracknell. A straw coloured pour with a ring of white head; grassy aroma with some limey citrus; thin dusty citric taste; and a pleasant long grassy bitterness to finish. Rather odd.

Acorn Old Moor Porter (Bottle)
500ml bottle. In a jug . I got this Yorkshire ale from the welfare store aka Morrisons. The shoppers in there mope around looking suicidal and zombie like ,as they get their crates of Fosters and welfare value toilet paper ... . This caught my eye in the otherwise mundane as ever Morrison’s beer selection . Nose of chocolate malt, roasted malt, coffee, liquorice. Purple and brown coloured beer ,decent khaki head . This drinks with a roasted dry bitterness that I dig...and the vibes mentioned in the nose. A pretty solid .

Acorn Barnsley Gold (Cask)
Fairly staunch clear golden very thin ringed head producing some thinly spotted lacing. Nose is grassy dishcloth lemon. Initial taste is a keen but acrid citrus, brassy bitterness. Thin enough mouthfeel. Finishes awkwardly bitter and lingers minerally and coppery. Wouldn’t say it was in great nick in fairness.

Cask, The Crown, Belfast
