jjsint (781) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Mid brown, healthy white head. Light aroma of berries and gardenias, White tea and maple syrup. Heavy malt predominates in a sweet taste with a hint of umami. Only slighty bitter at the finish. Astringent aftertaste which comes from nowhere.

BlackHaddock (3795) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2012
Hand-pulled pint on 22 Sep 2012 during the ’Oakengates Folk and Ale Day’ in the Crown Inn. Mid-range everything really: brown body, biege head. mini mixed, weak aromas of both malts and fruity hops. The taste was also neither here or there: just a semi-bland beer going nowhere. A bit of a disappointment actually: body depth was also Mr Average.
