Cask at wetherspoons. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a thin loose head. Aroma is lemon and a little pineapple. Light body, watery. It's green apple, a touch of pineapple, a bit of pear, some citrus at the end. Nicely bitter. Despite it being a bit wet its still pretty tasty. OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BlackHaddock (6384) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2013
Hand-pulled pint into a UK pint sleeve in my local Wetherspoons on 8 Aug 2013. Good looking beer: full on amber with a red hue, on top a deep covering of white foam. The nose was both fruity and floral hops, with a malty undertone. The taste also a mixed bag of flavours, with the malts being stronger on the tongue than in the aroma. The malts give a sweetness that the hops try to prevent and this produces an interesting blend of flavours of dark berries and biscuit notes.

Cask at the moon under water watford. Light copper colour with a slight haze. Long lasting white head and good lace. aroma is deer earthy hop. Some peppery favours come through. Sweet with mid carbonation . Tart bitterness on the finish. Middle of the road on this one.

Cask conditioned handpump Moon On The Square Northampton. A copper coloured beer with a loose but large white head. An odd beer with a fruity malty aroma with grapefruit and crisp apple notes. A little strange but drinkable enough.
