BlackHaddock (6201) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2014
Hand-pulled pint in The Shrewsbury Hotel (Spoons) on 24th Feb 2014. Light amber brew with a deep and lasting white crown. Decent blend of aromas and flavours: floral and fruity nose with a semi-sweet malty backbone. The taste was also based around a maltiness, biscuit and bread notes came to mind. Again there is a floral and fruitiness within the beer, slight citrus feel too. Nice balance, nothing overpowering or special tasting, just a good beer from start to finish.

Rune (11036) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 17, 2013
Hand pulled cask ale, half at Fall Well (JDW). Unclear golden coloured body. Faint white head that laced well. Dusty hops to the nose as well as hints of honey sweetness. Lemony hops to the flavour character added by hints of citrus shells leading to a dry, bittersweet ending. Food friendly partner to the breakfast (Liverpool, 09.04.2013).
