COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Keg & Bottle; Regular.
Previously a trial brew now regular.

Hops: Amarillo, Centennial, Citra
A fresh, zesty, aromatic pale ale brewed with malted barley, a little wheat, and Amarillo, Centennial and Citra hops from the West Coast of the USA. The British ale tradition collides head first with the best of the US craft beer movement, resulting in an incredibly drinkable Pale Ale with tonnes of US hop aroma and flavour.

BlackHaddock (3764) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2014
330ml bottle: BBD 20 Dec 2014. bottled on 20 Aug 2014, bought and consumed at the Wild Card brewery and tap room on 13 Sep 2014. Poured a hazy light orange colour. Mild citrus notes to the grassy and fresh veg aroma. Took a while to like this, initial taste was meh, then it began to take off a bit with the malts coming out to play: some baked biscuit flavours along with a bitter orange hint turned it into a pleasant ’sunny’ beer.

RichardW (1514) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle Coppers Newcastle. Pours a slightly hazy orange colour. Unusual one. Grassy, vegetable aroma, the palate is a little thin, with some metallic notes, also leaving a dry, woody taste. As you get through it, though there’s a more biscuity and bitter character to it, with orange flavour coming through nicely & it finishes well.
