Cask at the Old Swan. Poured a clear medium amber with a frothy white head and some broken lace. The aroma is peachy fruit, malt. The flavour is light bitter with a fresh fruity light hop bitter palate and a mellow lingering bitter finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Cask at Ma Pardoes, Netherton. Sweet, clicking malt brew. Sticky honey, full bodied Best. Typical Black Country Bitter, in an all time classic boozer.

StueyD (1542) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2014
A hazy amber gold coloured beer with a weak white head. A light, caramel aroma, a little butterscotch plus a hint of fruity hop. Dry mouthfeel. A dry malt taste to start, then a butterscotch flavour comes through that does detract from the hoppiness that struggles to make an appearance towards the end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BlackHaddock (5194) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2014
Hand-pulled pint in the excellent Kinver Constitutional Club on 3rd June 2014. Pours a good solid gold with white head that hung around. The nose was fruity with light maltiness, biscuit and bread like. The taste followed on in the same pattern, malty rather than hop bitter. Fairly smooth for a bitter and very easy to drink.
