BlackHaddock (4124) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2014
Badged as Seven. Cask, gravity poured half-pint at the Bridgnorth Beer Festival on 6th Sep 2014. Good, clear amber with an off-white head. The nose was toasted/baked bread with marmalade. The taste was more bitter than the aroma hinted at with a mild citrus feel to the orange marmalade I found in the smell. A whole lot better than the ’Nova’ I had before this.
