(Cask at Gallows Bird Real Ale Festival ’13) The beer poured deep golden and clear. Its head small and white. Aroma had fruitiness, sweetness and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A good but a bit unbalanced beer.

BlackHaddock (6219) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2015
Hand-pulled half-pint in the Pheasant, Wellington Shropshire on 28th April 2015. Good looking deep amber body with enough hops to float a Battleship. I like West Coast style APA’s and this had just enough bitterness to give it that sort of taste, too hoppy for some I’m sure, but it worked for me.

Beersiveknown (5001) - NORTHERN IRELAND - SEP 27, 2011
Factoberfest 2011 .A good example of a new world pale ale this beer was pithy, resinous and clean with a floral aroma. The beer really benefitted from its 60 minutes continual hopping with centennial, cascade and amarillo,
