Timothy Taylor’s Boltmaker

Timothy Taylor and Company, Ltd.  Keighley, West Yorkshire, UK; Bottled by Frederic Robinson, Ltd. Bredbury, Cheshire, UK

Boltmaker was originally brewed in the 1930’s as a Best Bitter to slake the demanding thirst of Yorkshire’s miners, steel workers and engineers.  Boltmaker is a well-balanced, genunine Yorkshire beer with a full measure of maltiness and a hoppy aroma.

4.2% ABV

Hazy dark amber in color.  Large Marge thinks it smells of apple juice while Father Jack gets a sweet malty nose.  Does not taste like an ESB to Father Jack.  Maltier than Jack the Sipper.  Father Jack gets bitterness all the way through while Large Marge gets the bitterness at the end.  This tastes like a Best Bitter.

Would we have it again?  No…  Not bad, but nothing to write home about…
