Draft at Charlie’s Bar. Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma of citrus, light malt and light vinegar, but not unpleasant. Flavour is light sweet and bitter, slight metallic. Light bodied and soft carbonation.

BlackHaddock (4367) - 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.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2013 Low but unappealing aroma, but an unexpectedly nice malty taste to this ale.

The aroma and the taste is rather thin with notes of caramel malt, fruit and hops. Easy to drink with a pleasant dry hop bitterness in the aftertaste.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 22, 2011
On cask at Cloisters. Light golden ale with a thin white head. Yeasty, caramel nose and flavours with a funky apple cider flavour that lingers. Very dry which I like.

davet100 (16) - Virginia, USA - MAR 26, 2011
On cask @ Odiham and Greywell Cricket Club, Hampshire. Delightful beer, very pale golden appearance with pleasant citrus overtones and a flavour characterised by a hint of dry hopping in the brew. Definite refreshing qualities and despite being quite light, it is is deceivingly flavourful and full bodied. Very drinkable.
