A chestnut brown beer with a malty taste, lacking in depth leading to a rather mediocre bitter overtone.

An amber coloured ale with little aroma. The taste leads to a slight bitterness. There is good retention of the head with a lovley barm. Although not unpleasant this is certainly not "Best" in any sense of the word. Mediocre and boring. As the saying goes "You can't polish a turd".

Needs to be sampled in North Yorkshire near the brewery. This beer has exceptional dryness and a clear bitter side.

Brown, hoppy bitter with fruity undertones. Dry bitter finish. Makes a good session ale if found in good condition.

An enjoyable bitter, dry and bitter with some malt to balance, had some very good pints in Yorkshire Dales, seems very consistent.

Cask conditioned at The Mitre, Cambridge. Deep golden colour, low to none head. A decent session bitter, nothing wrong, nothing spectacular. Tolerably malty aroma and flavour with a decent hoppy finish.

Had this beer down south and it did nothing for me. Another review suggested it didn't travel and I fear it was right.

First sampled this at the Overflow, Glasgow in November 1993. Copper red in colour with a good creamy white head. Slight malt in the aroma with a thin mouthfeel. Pale malt complexes give a robust digestive malt flavour with slight raisin fruit notes. Metallic hop resin tang evident in the dry aftertaste.
