AshtonMcCobb (5372) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 30, 2015
Bottle from Appleyards Deli, Shrewsbury. Appearance - deep golden to amber. Decent head. Nose - dusty malt, maybe light peaches. Some caramel. Taste - tangy apple and dry biscuit. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - solid but unexciting.

Bottle shared with Ashton McCobb. Pours hazy gold with a thin white head. Aromas of yeast, spice, lemon washing up liquid. Taste is thin, light malty, light bitter, green apples too. Light sweet, slightly chewy finish.

BlackHaddock (6375) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2013
500ml Bottle conditioned: obtained from Norman himself when visiting his brewpub. Poured at home into an Abbot Ale glass tankard on 19 Jun 2013. No sediment appeared to leave the bottle: slight haze to my old gold/amber coloured beer, on top a full and lasting head of off-white bubbles. Norman, youíve sold me a pup! On the turn, this isnít right. Smells OK, malts and fruitiness fill the nose nicely. The taste however is íon the turní, not undrinkable, but not far off: this is going to go through me like a dose of íyou know whatí but Iíll not throw it away, Iím too mean. A Red Leicester Cheese and Branston Pickle roll helped me make it through the brew: well half of it anyway, I did have to drain pour some. I shouldnít really post this: but this is the third beer Iíve had to pour away from this brewpub and I didnít write about the other two out of politeness to Norman who I know fairly well. Sorry Norman, but you must not sell beers that are off!

Gravity cask at the Wandsworth Halloween Beer Festival 2011. Pours rich gold with a small, white head. Nutty, malty aroma. Lightly sweet flavor, bit of toast, caramelish sugar, light leafy bitters. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Mild sweet finish, hints of toasty sugar and nuts. So so.

Cask Conditioned Handpump Criterion Leicester. A light amber coloured beer with an off-white thin head. The aroma is fairly sweet and fruity with a faint hint of vinegar. The taste is also on the sweet side with berries. Decent enough but would prefer less chewy fruitiness.
