Beer Festival 2023 - Tasting Notes and Sponsors

Baildon Cricket Club would like to thank all of our sponsors for their involvement in this year's festival. Without your support it simply would not be possible to put this event on.

Cask Beer

£3.50 Pint         £1.80 Half Pint

DDH Citra - 4.2% ABV                   Style - DDH Pale

Saltaire Brewery                            Sponsored by Saltaire Brewery

We’ve taken one of our most popular beers, which showcases one of the most aromatic and flavoursome hops, and juiced it up with an extra hit of Citra hops. Double Dry Hopping adds more flavour and aroma to what was already a punchy, citrussy beer.

Nectaron - 3.9% ABV                   Style - Light Pale

Saltaire Brewery                            Sponsored by Saltaire Brewery

Taking its name from the New Zealand hop, this is a session pale ale, which is big on tropical fruit and citrus flavours and aromas and low on abv.

Unity - 6% ABV                               Style - India Pale Ale

Saltaire Brewery                            Sponsored by Saltaire Brewery

A complex, balanced blend of rich malt and fruity, resinous hops give this authentic India Pale Ale real character.

South Island - 3.5% ABV              Style - Light Pale

Saltaire Brewery                            Sponsored by Winifred Butterfield in memory of Don Butterfield

Punching above its weight in flavour, this is a clean, crisp beer with subtle fruitiness from Nelson Sauvin hops.

Titus - 4.9% ABV                           Style - Amber

Saltaire Brewery                            Sponsored by The Bull (Baildon)

Traditional bitterness meets a twist of citrus in this clean, contemporary take on a British classic.

IPA - 5.5% ABV                              Style - India Pale Ale

Wharfedale Brewery                    Sponsored by Baildon Chiropody & Podiatry

Mosaic, Simco, Nelson Sauvin, Citra, Commet and Equinox hops combine to produce an easy drinking, smooth, hoppy IPA with a strong flavour and a good bitter taste with caramel undertones.

Moonshine - 4.3% ABV                Style - Pale

Abbeydale                                      Sponsored by

Our most popular beer & multi award winning Sheffield icon since 1996. Hopped with Willamette, Delta, Citra, Chinook & Centennial – this is a beautifully well balanced pale. A distinctive floral aroma, a smooth body & a mellow, predominantly citrus taste, with grapefruit & lemons to the fore.

Raspberry Blonde- 4.5% ABV                   Style - Fruit Blonde

Little Critters                                                Sponsored by Workwear Outlet

Our fantastically balanced, fruity session beer. The bready, lightly caramel malt enhances the sublime selection of whole hops used. This light-bodied brew has a delightful raspberry finish, making it a truly scrumptious, genuine, and moreish blonde.

Burning Bails - 4.5% ABV                           Style - Golden

Acorn                                                             Sponsored by Liverpool John Moores University

Hedgerow - 4.5% ABV                                 Style - Pale

Portobello                                                     Sponsored by The Black Hat (Ilkley)

After distillation, the gin is infused with the delicious signature tartness of rhubarb, one more in a beautifully balanced array of skilfully selected flavours.

Zingy orange (marmalade-esque) is swiftly overtaken by a rich and earthy chocolate undertone. Hints of vanilla-rich cake and just a touch of almondy-goodness. A solid backbone of juniper brings up the rear.
