Theakston’s Lightfoot


Mention Theakston’s and most people think of Old Peculier, of course it’s not the only beer they brew.

I have drunk Old Peculier, Best and XB before, but when I recently saw a bottle of Lightfoot, I hadn’t seen it before, so bought a bottle.

Lightfoot Bitter was created as a tribute to Lightfoot Brewery, Masham which we acquired in 1919. The label and pump clip depict the original Brewery site, here in Masham, at the heart of the Yorkshire Dales. This is a delicious and refreshing, golden ale – brewed in the time honoured Theakston fashion.

It’s light in colour and though the website describes the smell and taste as floral, this is no Golden Glory!

I really enjoyed it, very light and refreshing, an ideal beer for the summer.
