BlackHaddock (4150) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2012
This was the first beer on one of my ’random beer tsting nights’ (20th April 2010). Brown 500ml bottle, slightly out of date and poured into a Batemans pint sleeve. Good mid-amber colour, off-white head of tightly knit foam which showed good retension and produced some good lacing on the glass. Fuggles and Challenger hops are used and the blend marries well in both the bitterness of taste and with the malted barley in the aroma which was an almost sweet toffee smell as the beer warmed a little. I found the beer to be refreshing, crisp and tastey, full of a true English Bitter flavour (hoppy, malty and very drinkable. The 3.8%ABV makes this a very good session beer and I look forward to having another one day soon.
