Pours a golden copper colour with a small foamy head. Aroma of pale malts, Goldings and grass. Flavour of pale malts, Goldings, some herbs and strong dry nuttiness. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a dry, harsh, bitter finish. Good one.

Holmen1 (3936) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2012
Fra håndpumpe på pub i London jan-11: Tydelig kjeks (Maris Otter malt?) og engelske humler. Lett karbonert som gir en myk munnfølelse. Medium bitterhet. God pubøl med bare 3,6%, gjør pubcrawl til en fornøyelse og ikke anstrengelse.

Mild aroma has cherry with nice hoppiness. Bit malty aroma also as this gets warmer. Bit hazy dark amber. Nice frothy head stays quite well. Taste is bit woodywith citrus in finish. Palate is thin, bit watery, sour. Interesting.

BlackHaddock (5193) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2012
Hand pulled pint taken at the lovely ’Faltering Fullback’ in North London; Oct 2011: UK pint sleeve glass, unmarked. The beer was a pale copper colour, clear and bright. The head a good showing of off-white bubbles which settled and stayed. A lot better looking than the bottled version I reviewed some years back. Good healthy aroma of hops and malts, no overpowering smell, just enough to let you know it’s a beer in your hand. Very easy to drink, I had three pints and wanted more, but the wife needed food. A really good blend of flavours, like the nose nothing powerful, just a subdued pleasantness all round.

pours amber with a small white head. the aroma is light, and flowery with some biscuits. taste is nothing complex, some fruit, some sweetness, a bit thin. it was ok, but nothing special.
