Cask in the George and Dragon, Dent. Amber with a White head. Quite syrupy with grapefruit notes and a bitter finish. Something a little off in the finish, but otherwise OK.

Theydon_Bois (7904) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2012
Served via cask dispense at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green(Feb ’12). Dispensed into a UK half pint jug to a clear amber/gold colour with a thin white head which soon subsided to a small pond on top - around the edge of the glass. On the nose, caramel a little yeast and some fruit aroma, but not particularly strong in any area. Taste wise more going for this beer than the smell! Sweet malt, caramel, bready, a little yeast and a bitter hoppy dry aftertaste. Mouthfeel was decent enough, low carbonation, medium to full in body. Overall - an OK beer but not something I’ll be looking to actively seek out again!

Aroma of fruit and bread. Deep gold-copper color with full beige head. Nice mouthfeel, dominant hops, notes of honey and orange.

BlackHaddock (3480) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2012
12th Feb 2012: Sunday lunchtime session at The White Hart, Shifnal, Shropshire. Hand pulled pint. Light amber body with an off-white which started thin and got even thinner as the beer level sank down the glass. Mixed bag of aromas: all weak, hints of malty sweetness and fruit as well as hop citrus notes. The taste was also a mixture, thankfully stronger than the smells: Dried fruits, biscuit malts and a mini hop bitterness towards the end of each gulp. Not a world beater, but well worth trying if you ever see it

Stall malt flavor with an alcohol and acid aftertaste. Light golden with little aroma and a white head. I’ll pass if offered again.
