BlackHaddock (6340) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2012
21st April: opening of the refurbished ‘Elephant and Castle’ in Dawley, Shropshire. Hand pulled pint of a golden misty body, on top a thin crown of white bubbles sat throughout the tasting. The smell was of citrusy hops with floral overtones, only a suggestion of malts in the nose. The taste was a pleasant blend of those aforementioned hop flavours and a malt caramel feel. Body depth fine for the alcohol content: an OK beer but no world beater.

tombyars (1589) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 23, 2012
First tasted this in the Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in January 2008. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear orange amber in colour with a thick white head. Strong marmalade notes in the short but intense aroma. Good creamy mouthfeel and decent lacing. Pale malt complexes leads to a biscuit flavour with citric fruit notes of orange peel and pink grapefruit. Dry dusty hop resins give a floral bitter aftertaste. Finish is slightly malty with pithy citrus fruit evident in the mouth. An ok session bitter but nothing exceptional.

Cask@GBBF2011. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity, wooden, mild floral and resiny notes. Flavour is caramel malts, some wood, mild burnt wood, some earth and herbs as well. Pleasantly bitter finish, but gets a bit ruined by a rather metallicness in the aftertaste.
