A good session ale, with malt and biscuit notes; it has a delicate hop aroma and a refreshing citrus hop after taste

On cask at the Wheatsheaf in Wetheral. Appearance - amber with a lovely creamy head. Nose - butterscotch Iím afraid but maybetitís fudge. Taste - more butterscotch and malt. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a slightly astringent finish. Overall - not worth getting another.

BlackHaddock (3587) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2014
500ml Bottle from Beers of Europe: drank at home on 2nd July 2014. Poured into a Batemanís pint sleeve. Clear amber to copper body with a full but fading off-white head. Nice blend of aromas and flavours, malts lead the way in both the nose and taste, lightly roasted, bread like in fact. The hops are there but in the background somewhat. Good depth of body for a 3.8% ABV brew.

Aroma: bread malts, not much else. Appearance: clear gold, small white creamy head. Taste: light sweet and bitter. Palate: bitters intensify, pushing the grainy malts into the background. Overall: sub-standard Bitter, just not liking the palate too much. Pint at William Rufus, Carlisle.

500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours clear amber, little to no head. Light malt loaf aromas, dried fruit, bit of butterscotch. Taste hasnít got a right lot going on. Bit watery. Ok.

jackl (4559) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 4, 2013
Cask @ Bacchus, Newcastle. The pourís a deep amber color with a tiny, creamy white head. The nose is practically non-existent. I get some light apple and a bit of toffee. The taste is digestive biscuit, some caramel-covered apple. Not much else. Pretty dry on this finish. Light body, soft carbonation. Overall, completely inoffensive. Not bad, though completely forgettable.

Cask at Pigs Ear. Clear pale gold beer. Light dry palate. No real head. A little fruit in there but itís all a bit too dry and insipid to be enjoyable.
