BlackHaddock (3479) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2014
Hand-pulled pint in The Cuckfield, Wanstead on 19th Apr 2014: my first cask ale for some time (been out the country). Golden body, not much head. Mild citrus nose and flavour, light grainy maltiness within the taste to help combat the hop bitterness and citrus notes: dry ending and overall a bit bland and uninteresting.
