I have not seen this beer very often. Then, on Remembrance Sunday of all days I see Englands Pride, it seemed almost fated. So I drank it in a quiet gesture in tribute to the mighty that have fallen.
Now I would love to go on to say how amazing it is, how it sums up all that is good about Britain and it’s ale. I really would love to, but I can’t.
It is… okay. There’s no undue bitterness to it, or over complicated sweetness. In fact, I think that is what the problem is. There’s nothing much to this ale at all. It’s rather bland. If you really search there’s some fruitiness in there, and mild hops giving it a bit of body. It goes down smoothly enough (partly because you hardly notice it in your mouth) but then just sits in your stomach quite heavily.
A crying shame for the promise of the moment when I bought the pint.

You know the drill, go see what else York Brewery have to offer.
You need to fix your grammar!! 😛 (although I am unsure how to spell it) aha x
