Cask @ Charlies Bar, Cph.
Light hazy yellow with a small, white film head. Aroma has mild bread and light sweetness. Not much, really. Lowish carbonation, rather watery. Flavour is quite sweet, doughy, grassy. Fairly bitter finsh. Boring and a bit unbalanced.

BlackHaddock (5194) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2012
Hand pulled pint in the local (Cock Hotel, Wellington, Shropshire) on 6th April 2012. This is a regular guest around Shropshire and I was surprised I hadn’t reviewed it before. Light golden body (almost lager-like) with a thinning white head. Aroma a mini-mix of mild malty molasses and citrusy hops: they come and go in the breeze interchanging as they go. The taste is also a mix of the same flavours in the smell: the beer becoming a little more bitter towards the end of each sip. Looks weaker than it is: good depth of flavours with an alcohol content that suits it.

pivoveskotsku (201) - SCOTLAND - JUL 6, 2012
On tap. Pale golden colour. Metallic aroma, some fruit in the taste and some vinegar too. Not great. It got better as it heat up, but it really wasn’t fantastic. I can’t say I enjoyed it much.

ManVsBeer (6461) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2013 Low but unappealing aroma, but an unexpectedly nice malty taste to this ale.
