Geeves Brewery Yorkshire Pride (4%)

Yorkshire PrideBrewed for the Barnsley and Rotherham Chamber Of Commerce President’s Charity Ball, this is a very nice Pale Ale but I have to say that I have a sneaking suspicion that this wasn’t, “Brewed Specially,” as it reminds me rather a lot of one of Geeves’ other beers.
I can’t put my finger on exactly which one, Clear Cut perhaps?
Not that it matters, I’ve said before how much I like Geeves’ beer, and this is no exception.
It’s a light straw coloured beer that smells of dried grass, lemon and honey and has a light caramel malt that’s warm with crushed peppercorns.
The hops are really snappy and sharp, full of lemon rind and lots of nettles, and the finish is long and dry, crisp and bitter.
This is a lovely Pale Ale.
