MickGood09 Aug 2011 Nice session bitter, perfect balance of hops and malt, could drink this all evening.

Station Inn, Ribblehead, North Yorkshire

ChrisEExcellent01 Jul 2011 This was a beer advertised as Station Ale on the pump clip, but the barman advised me that it is a 3.8% beer brewed by Copper Dragon, so I am reasonably certain that it was a badged Copper Dragon Bitter.
