BlackHaddock (5069) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2015
13th Aug 2015: cask pint in The Wellington, Ayr, Scotland. Poured a light golden yellow with a white head. Floral notes with a cut grass aroma, the taste sweeter than the nose hinted at, yet with a mild citrus flavour cutting into the floral traces from the aroma. Slight bitterness towards the finish. Decent but no strong flavours to get into really.

On cask @ the Guildford Arms. Pours blonde with a considerable haze and a decent head. The nose has lemon and flowers with a touch of yeastiness too. The taste pretty much reiterates the yeasty lemon thing. The palate is light bodied with a lean texture which goes into the finish. Not very complicated but does the job.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2013 Cask @ The Wise Monkey & Brel. Creamy resin malt aroma. golden amber colour with minimal head. Cereal citrus flavour with bitter aftertaste. A bit watery& bland. Used to think this one was much better.

Cask at Blackfriars, Glasgow. RBESG. Clear golden colour. Earthy/Grassy aroma with vanilla and bit of fruits. Fresh in flavour with soft body. Hoppiness is reminiscent of elder or the likes. Light odied and tasty.

I do not know why i was forgetting to rate this one. The aroma is fruity and the taste is a little bitter but also like blonde ales. According to the Owner, it is a Summer Ale, but hard to classify.

Back log from Spring of 2011 in Scotland; On tap, poured a clear gold. Aroma had bread, grass, and a touch of citrus. To me it had some pilsener like elements. Flavor was solid with the same profile.

On cask at Cloisters. Pours a blonde colour with a fair white head. Aroma is a little fruity with caramel, barley and yeast. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and a little dry finish. Just OK with lingering yeast and grassy hops.
