Cask conditioned handpump Slug & Lettuce Leicester 21/11/12. A dark gold coloured beer with a white head. Good hoppiness in the nose with a touch of sugary sweetness from the malt. Itís the same in the mouth. There is a distict digestive biscuit taste too. A really interesting flavoured beer which I really enjoyed.

BlackHaddock (6344) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2012
Hand-pulled half pint at the 2012 Shrewsbury Beer Festival (1st Nov). Light amber body with a tight white head that tried to hang around but turned into a wisp and collar half way down the tasting. The nose was fairly weak: spicy hops and maybe a biscuity malt hint. The taste was all hop, spicy, semi-bitter and not citrusy, which is a change for Salopian at the moment. Pleasantly surprised by the brew: I thought it might be bland and boring (like some of the Blackwater range), but it wasnít.
