Hesket Newmarket Blencathra Smoked Porter
Bottle as a gift. Pours dark brown with a little white head. The aroma features smoked maltiness with a sweetish touch; rye bread, no Bamberg style ham. Taste is medium sweet, lightly roasty and lightly smoky as well. Smokiness is subtle rather than overpowering. Sweetish maltiness is the dominant feature; it includes bread and ripe dark fruitiness; no caramel, though. The palate is light to medium-bodied, low in carbonation, smooth in texture. Drinkable and fairly tasty but light on the departments that count.

Hesket Newmarket Old Carrock Strong Ale
A head that quickly dissipated and left quite a flat beer. However, this lack of any effervescence complemented a beer that was porter like in its flavour. Lots of toasted malt and some hop bitterness added interest, but I couldn’t escape the thought that it tasted a bit like home brew. The blurb said bottled Christmas pudding but I really didn’t get that stewed fruit flavour. All in all not very good.

Light haze on this amber beer, small cream colour head. Palate is smooth and semi dry, reasonable fine carbonation. Smooth malts, little dry cream and caramel. Touch of dry floralness and bitter floralness. Ripe orange. Light semi dry finish. It’s okay, but for me, really not getting the best out of that hop bill.

Hesket Newmarket Blencathra West Coast Red
Bottle, pours lightly hazy dark amber, small off white head. Opened the bottle and the nose was aggressive, a tad off putting initially but after accepting this wasn’t an IPA by the usual definition, found the aroma settled with the malts and spice leading, with pine and citrus. More like a classic American Strong Ale, and a pleasure to be surprised like that with a UK brew. Medium bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation and a finish that is bitter and balanced with some sweet fruitiness

Hesket Newmarket Blencathra West Coast Red
Not sure what style this should be but ipa is closest. Appearance - beautiful deep amber autumnal red. Nice lacy head. Nose - cake mixture, dried orange and some red fruit. Maybe redcurrants. Taste - really dried berries. Cranberries. Dry malt. Palate - close to medium bodied with a dry middle section that continues through the finish. Overall - initially fruity, then a bit dry and gnarly but the challenge is worth it.

Hesket Newmarket Brim Fell
Bottle from Rheged. Appearance - amber with a nice fluffy head. Nose - pine and light cake. Taste - more cake, dried orange and caramel. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - wouldn’t say this was an ipa as the brewer advertises or a golden ale as it is loaded. More of a bitter with elements of a mild.
