Wonkey Donkey is traditionally brewed to give a pleasurable pale amber bitter. It has a good fruity, hoppy aroma and a flavour of malt and hops that lead to a fruity finish.

BlackHaddock (4995) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2015
500ml bottle: BBE Dec 2015. Shared with no one on 31st July 2015. Poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard, it looked fine. Pale amber body, clean and clear, the head a white affair. Fruity hop aroma, no citrus notes (pleased about that), slight maltiness also. The taste followed the nose in flavour, fruity and malty with a semi-bitter finish. Most enjoyable.

Lightly hazy gold beer, little white head. Palate is minerally crisp. Light clean pale malt, whisper of cream. Hops are light, a little citrus and a light floral touch. Neutral finish. Quite well balanced. Standard stuff, done well.

Cask @ The Staff of Life Inn, Todmorden. A flavoursome golden ale with a smooth head. Has mild orange fruit notes in aroma and taste. You can really smell the hops as if they are dry before the brewing process.
