History and heritage are huge factors here, as the brewery was established in 1758 and the beer was fermented in traditional open-topped slate vessels known as Yorkshire Squares. A consistent year-round release—roasty caramel-drizzled malt notes abound alongside hints of dried apricot, fresh-baked bread and earthy, woody spice. The malty core is balanced by plenty of resiny hop flavors. The brisk, drying finish shows some black tea astringency along with notes of peppery spice and citrus essence.
