Yorkshire Square Ale

After quite a while my local Morrisons, Huddersfield, is again selling Black Sheep Brewery Yorkshire Square Ale, it's in bottles but a good imitation of the draught sold in the brewery.

Can't say I could praise any of Black Sheep's beers the special is just about acceptable - the yorkshire square about the best of the lot.
They seem to be stocked by pubs who want to stock a guest beer but don't know much about it.
You'd be better off going to the Grove, Rat and Ratchet or Station Tavern for something decent

Well, I do love a pint of Riggwelter -- but it's damned impossible to find outside the brewery in Masham.
Those three pubs in Huddersfield put up about the best selection of real ales I've seen anywhere. The Rat & Ratchet Mild festival was incredible. One side of The Grove always has about eight ales on the pump.

It's an almost permanent fixture on the bar at the West Riding in Dewsbury, although it's temporarily replaced at the moment by Bazens t'Noll Street Porter (due in part to beers ordered for the recent beer festival).
Seconded!

Nice to know. The last several trips over, all we found (mostly) were blonde ales and lagers. All thru Yorkshire, even. What a downer! We just love Olde Peculier, Riggwelter, RamTam (yeah, I know, tarted up) and other dark ales. Each year there are fewer Yorkshire ales and more "brewed thru a horse" kinda southern stuff. Wot's happening over there??? The louts taking over?

Southern stuff such as Nethergate's Old Growler, Mauldon's Blackadder, Wychwood Hobgoblin, Dorothy Goodbody's Wholesome Stout, Mutley's Dark/Revenge?
Though I do admit to liking Riggwelter (bottled, can't get it on draught down here) OldP is OK too, don't remember having tried RamTam.

Whatever do you mean "fewer Yorkshire ales"? I'll have you know that the original Stones Bitter was extremely blonde! Can't vouch for the taste as this is going back a few years. Now I generally associate darker beers with the West Midlands, not Yorkshire and I can't understand where you get your association from. If you were, however, to visit Yorkshire around Christmas, you'd find plenty of darker beers as these tend to be associated with winter in those parts.
