COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Originally a special but was made permanent.
Note: The original version of this beer used Pale Ale malt, Crystal malt, Munich & some Wheat malt and the hops were specified as Columbus, Chinook & Citra.

At 4.5% abv, this Pale Ale has a good assertive pithy bitterness and a malty backbone. It is brewed with a selection of malts – Pale Ale, Rye Crystal and Cara – we use Citra, and a blend of other American hop varieties to create some great citrus flavours.

BlackHaddock (4388) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2013
Three hand-pulled pints in The Kings Head, Lingwood, on 25th Oct 2013. Looked good on each pour: bright amber, clear and clean, on top a full white head that gave some heavy lacing. Just like it’s bottled brother it leads with citrus notes in the nose and taste: has a pleasant bitter feel, yet comes with a malty undercurrent. It’s well balanced and easy to drink, hence the three pints!

I really love this ale. A fruity, very pale and complex ale, that is quaffable enough to drink all night. This was my choice of Adams cask for my wedding day. 'Nuff said! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
