History and heritage are huge factors here, as the brewery was established in 1758 and the beer is fermented in traditional open-topped stone (slate) vessels known as Yorkshire Squares. Roasty caramel-drizzled malts abound on the nose, with dried apricots, fresh-baked bread and earthy, woody spice softly playing in the background. The flavors are malty but with plenty of resiny hop notes to balance it out, with a slightly oily texture in the mouth. The brisk, drying finish shows some black tea astringency along with peppery spice and hints of citrus essence.
