This went down a treat

Fancy A Pint? The retirement project to sample a pint of beer or cider brewed or fermented in each county in the United Kingdom. #20

IMGP5845County: Yorkshire

What is it called? Yorkshire Best Bitter.

Who made it? Hambleton Brewery, Melmerby, North Yorkshire.

What is it? A bitter, using Northdown and First Goldings hops.

Alc Vol: 4.3%

What it says on the label: “This ale has a malty character with a hint of nuttiness from the crystal and roasted barley.”

Food combination: “Classic pub dishes like ploughman’s or toad in the hole.”

Retired Bloke Verdict: This is from Marks and Spencer’s range of British beers, which explains its geographically precise but somewhat unimaginative name. This was the beer I drank after day two of the hedge in-filling extravaganza at The Aged Parents (see below below), and again it went down a treat. I liked the nuttiness very much.

Fancy another? Yes.

It’s Not About The Beer: The North Yorkshire spa town of Harrogate is consistently voted as “the happiest place to live” in Britain.
