COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

A generous late addition of Mount Hood hops result in a delicate fruity hop aroma.

BlackHaddock (5847) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2013
Hand-pulled pint in Willy’s brew-pub, Cleethorpes: 30 Mar 2013. Pale gold with a pure white head that produced some good lacing. Refreshing feeling to the brew: hops in the aroma, floral mostly. The taste was also leaning towards hops with a bitterness that was noticable but not ’in your face’; the malt content calmed the hops down somewhat. Easy to drink and pleasing to the eye.
