Bottle at home on 15th January 2013; Christmas gift. Pours golden amber with thin white part-lacing foam. Rich hoppy aroma. Deliciously hoppy in-mouth with tangy citrus, a little smoke and savoury touches. Finish is fairly citric and biscuit-malty with developing bitterness. Zingy, engaging texture and medium body. Excellent.

tombyars (1354) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - OCT 15, 2012
Tasted this at the Troon Beer Festival in October 2012. Cask, gravity dispense. Clear pale straw in colour with a slight green tint and a thin white head. Pleasant floral aroma with notes of elderflower lingering long in the nose. Poor lacing throughout. Thin but clean, refreshing mouthfeel. Pale malts give a digestive biscuit base with sweet notes of light toffee and clear honey evident. Fresh floral green hops present in the dusty bitter aftertaste. The finish is rather light with delicate fruit notes of syrupy lychees and peaches, sweet in the mouth. A decent ESB but does taste far weaker than the ABV suggests. Well recommended - especially on a warm summers day.

Cask at the Wandsworth Common Spring BF, Le Gothique, London. Pours clear gold with a foamy, white head. Dry hay nose with some dough, white sugar and straw. Medium sweet flavor with doughy malts and bitter straw. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Good condition. Doughy malt finish with some toasty hay lending a little hop bite. Nice beer overall.

BlackHaddock (3645) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2012
Very suprised to find this bottle in a shop located in North East Lincolnshire (Cleethorpes to be exact). The original review has been lost on the BA site somehow, so this is a quick check of my memory. Average throughout, I was disappointed with it to be honest. I’ll review it again if i ever come across it, honest!
