BlackHaddock (6336) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2016
500ml bottle at home on 22nd Sep 2016. Poured a lovely clean, clear amber with a decent off-white head. Toffee aroma from the malts, nutty notes too, semi-sweet, semi-bitter and highly carbonated (a bit fizzy actually). Liked it.

ManVsBeer (8678) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2016
Bottle from Keelham Farm Shop, Thornton. Clear copper coloured with an extremely thin head. Has a crisp malty base, some hops, some sweetness. It’s a tasty balance.

martpez (125) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2016 A very typical example of a Yorkshire Bitter, severed at cellar temperature in the Golden Slipper in York. A dark bitter with bitter muddy hops and a treacle finish. Not at all bad.

fiulijn (19119) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 24, 2015
Cask from Birratrovo, Como
Hazy dull amber color with large frothy head. Strong aroma of green apple. Dry weak mouthfeel; astringent, papery, acetaldehyde.
Seriously bad.

Finn (6291) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 3, 2015
Fra cask på Walters Hull 23 Nov 15. Mørk gyldenbrun. Middels høyt tett skum. Forsiktig aroma av bær. Diffus smak. Mest fersken. Blir svakt syrlig etter hvert.

tombyars (1585) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - JUL 14, 2015
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) on the 20th June 2015. Cask, handpump dispense. Opaque dark amber in colour with a thin white head. Fruity green apple noted in the short hoppy aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt lends a digestive biscuit base with notes of green apple and gooseberry fruit. Slight hoppy aftertaste gives a lingering resiny note in the palate. Hops noted in the dry finish with hints of weak fruit just about detectable. A poor session bitter.

Bottle from blacker hall, wakefield. Reddish brown with nice off white head. Aroma is malty nutty and hoppy. Taste is dry bitter and refreshing. Very drinkable with mildish carbonation. Very nice ale.
