BlackHaddock (3779) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2012
Feb 2009: Brown 500ml bottle, poured into a UK pint sleeve glass. The rear label asked for the beer to be served cool, it was. Light amber, dull gold in colour with a good firm foaming off-white head. Pioneer Hops and White Malts are used in the brew and the hops could clearly be found in the fairly sweetish aroma, my nose isn’t good enough to pick out individual types of hops, even if I knew them! Bitter and refreshing, tangy and tart, but not dry or coy. A true English Bitter in every sense. Good hop retension in the mouthfeel, the bitterness from them obviously stays too. This is a well balanced beer and one I’d love to try on cask one day (soon).

MiP (13598) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 6, 2008
Cask, 4.3% at GBBF08. Weak fruit aroma. Hazy golden colour. Stable frothy white head. Good fruity flavour. Medium bitterness. Not dry and not sweet, but good.

Rune (8065) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 2, 2008
A pretty standard British golden ale, with grassy aroma, flavoured with some floral-fruity notes and ending up in a weak dry, bitter finish. Watered palate (Cask at GBBF, 08.08.2008).

Had it at GBBF 2008. It was very malty indeed I liked it’s grains taste. NOt boring and very drinkable.

wyzzywyz22 (1961) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2008
Bottle, Barleycorns, Nantwich. A summer drink for a summer that is yet to quite ignite. Poured a golden colour with a thinnish white head. Malty, sweet aroma. Some fruit and hop present in the flavour which again is a bit on the sweet side. Easy drinking. Quite enjoyed this.

DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2008
Bottled. Reddish amber, white halo. Doesn’t look real. Sickly buttery toffee aroma with musty ganja-ish hops struggling to poke through. Caramel and green nettley hop, bit of citrus.

oh6gdx (20333) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 4, 2007
Cask@GBBF2007. Golden colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is fruity hops with some wooden hints. Flavour is earthy, cellary, fruity hops and some caramel malts. Finish and aftertaste are spicy and grassy in an unpleasant way.
