563: Whitby Brewery | Smuggler's Gold

The Brewery: “Whitby Brewery has been producing delightfully delicious Yorkshire ales since 2013. The brewery itself was built by hand by local Whitby craftsmen and has proven to be perfect for brewing cracking Yorkshire ales. We use only the finest floor-malted barley and whole hops to make what we think are some of the best beers about………Whitby Brewery was founded with one aim - to brew the finest beers around. It's been an exciting 3 years since we produced our first beers and now we've moved to our larger premises we're ready to take Whitby Brewery to the next stage. Our commitment to quality, the dedication of our staff and our driving passion means we're always learning, developing and improving our recipes and our processes.”

The Beer: “Extremely easy drinking and moreish. The use of pale barley gives a deliciously smooth maltiness which is then lifted slightly with the spiciness of Goldings hops. A fine golden ale that can be drunk all night long.”

I didn’t expect to be trying another of their beers quite so soon but glad that I did. Not my favourite style of beer as regulars will know but very enjoyable and found in a great real ale pub too. 4.2% A.B.V
