BlackHaddock (5652) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2014
Cask pint in the Bow Bar on 24th Oct 2014. Clear light golden with a thinning white crown. Aroma of citrus fruits, with lemon being the dominant one. The taste was also citrus led, mild biscuity maltiness as a base but overrun by the semi-bitter citrusy hops. OK, but not my thing really.

Scopey (11367) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2014
Keg at Bow Bar. It pours hazy gold with a decent white head. The nose is toasted grain, lemon meringue pie, soft fruits and floral notes. The taste is crisp, bitter, lemon peel, pithy, minerals and some florals and grainy with a dry finish. Crisp and refreshing. Quite like this on keg.

Cask at Bow Bar, Edinburgh on 19 May. Poured a clear light-mid golden colour, with a rocky white head. Aroma of pils malt, tropical fruit and floral hops. Bready malt flavours, mixed with peach and grassy hop. Finish was resin, dried fruit and chewy grain. Pretty by-the-books, but well polished.
