ciaranc (706) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 5, 2014
500 ml bottle. Clear dark yellow, sudsy white head. Faint malt and hop aroma. Flavour follows with the same conservative malt hop balance. Light, a touch watery, soft carbonation. Slight bitterness towards the finish. Inoffensive.

DandyLion (474) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2013
Bottle. Boring. Brown. Bitter. Very big bubbles. That's a thing I can say. Rubbish, but better than a can of carling. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

johndoughty (3716) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2013
Bottle. Golden appearance with a pleasant hoppy aroma. Well balanced bitterness and a pleasant amount of body considering its relatively low strength. Very well bottled and definitely one that its fighting above its strength.

olio (5281) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 22, 2013
50 cl bottle @ O’Hara’s, Tampere.
Pours clear golden color with a small head. Aroma of grass and fruits. Flavour of grass, some herbs and goose berries. Some disturbing off-flavors.

jackl (3862) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 15, 2013
Cask @ The Duchess of Cambridge. The pour’s a medium amber color with a small head. The aroma’s nectarine, fruit leather, some orange peel. Light countryside. The taste is plenty of jammy fruit - more nectarine and apricot. Soft toffee and bread. Mild toasty twig on the finish. Some dried leaves. Medium body, smooth. Soft carbonation. Overall, not a bad effort. Quite fruity.

BlackHaddock (3183) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2012
500ml bottle: best before Mar 2013, poured into a UK pint sleeve @ home on a cold and windy Sunday afternoon (9th Dec 2012). Looked fine: clear and bright amber with a full, uneven, cream head on top. Lacing on the glass as the beer level fell. The nose was of freshly baked biscuits with a bucket load of floral hop notes thrown in for good measure. Those smells got stronger as the beer warmed in the glass. Crisp and malty feel in the mouth: bitter, yet with a malt content that tries to give a sweeter taste to the hoppy bitterness. Nicely balanced brew and a great example of how to get flavours into a beer without having to up the alcohol count or add some strange un-needed ingrediants as so many brewers now seem to do. I’m getting more and more impressed with Moorhouse’s beers: I’ll be looking out for others in their range as well as re-visiting the ones I’ve already had.

500ml bottle. Pours light copper with a thin head. Yeasty aroma. Light tartness, some citrus with a light and underwhelming finish. Lacking complexity and punch, this one just peters out a little. Not unpleasant but slightly disappointing.
