Brewer:  Allendale Brewery

Bottle conditioned:  No

Country of origin:  England

What the label says:

This superbly balanced English bitter is made using only UK ingredients.  A floral aroma, hints of Seville orange and spiced dried fruit, with biscuit and toffee notes.  A summer visitor to fast flowing upland streams, the Grey Wagtail is a surprisingly colourful and energetic bird that is commonly seen around the brewery.

What the Beerdrinker says:

This beer does not have much of a head, and what it has soon disappears.  It has a slightly floral nose.  The beer has a real caramel and toffee taste and is quite creamy and buttery.  There are distinct biscuit flavours.  The flavours are particularly strong for a comparatively weak beer.
