BlackHaddock (3772) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2014
Hand-pulled half-pint in The Mariners, Great Yarmouth on 8th June 2014. Golden and clear with a good white head. Fairly sweet flavours, the malts leading the way over a floral hop backing group. Some fruity notes within the blend, I enjoyed this but it didn’t send me overboard: I moved onto other brews.
