Last week we had our first visit to York this year, the trip is covered here, and as last year, also included is a train trip to Harrogate for the day. I did not have as many new beers as I though I would but never mind.
Little Valley, Tod's Blond from England
5.0% pale amber or deep gold colour with a thin head, malty hoppy bitter aroma, fruity malty hoppy bitter taste, the photo is a bit blared though. This was the first one I had on this trip and I did't have a camera with me.
Ainsty Ales, Flummoxed Farmer from England.
4.0% gold colour with a thin head, it had a hoppy aroma and taste. This is a bottle we got in York and had back at the van that night.
Next day was spent in Harrogate, and the first beer I had had before but the second one that day was new.
Black Sheep, Blind Side from England.
4.3% amber colour with a nice head, not much aroma but with a bitter woody taste. The Rugby World cop has started and this is one beer to go with that.
I had another couple we had before, before getting another new one at the train station.
Arbor, Half-Day IPA from England.
5.2% gold colour with a good head, it was okay but a bit too hoppy. Dot also had a new one in there as well.
Bernard, Světlé Pivo from the Czech Republic.
3.8% gold colour with a nice head, not a bed larger, although I am not sure Dot liked it.
I also had one back at the van as well.
Ainsty Ales, Wankled Waggoner from England.
4.5% gold colour with a good head, not much aroma with a rather fizzy hoppy taste.
Next day we called in at the beer tent but the price put us off, we did have the one however.
Leeds, Midnight Bell from England.
4.8% black in colour with a good head, it had a poor aroma but a sweet fruity taste, not too bad.
Next day we only had Sam Smiths beers covered on here before, so the next new beer was the day after.
Ilkley, Lotus IPA from England.
5.6% gold colour with a good head, hoppy aroma and a sweet beer taste. I had two though.
Elland, 1872 Porter from England.
6.5% black in colour with a good head, a coffee aroma and taste with some bubblegum?
Next day the trip was over.
