Bullhorn Black Lager is a clean, crisp and refreshing black lager. It makes the best use of six different British malts, three hop varieties and a fantastic genuine lager yeast. Bullhorn gets its name from superstitious Cornish tin miners. If they met a snail on their way to work, they avoided bad luck by giving it some of their dinner or a little tallow from their lanterns. Bullhorn was the nickname given to snails, because of their horn like antenna.

Bottled. Near black with a slight, off-white head and moderate carbonation. Roasty malts, some dark chocolate and a gentle finish. Ok.

MichaelAwesome (6008) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 6, 2014
Recht hopfig mit Anteilen von Brot und Korn. Fruchtige Nunancen im Hintergrund mit einer Dominanz von Zitrone und Limette. Vollkommen in Ordnung, jedoch ohen groß aufzutrumpfen.

McTapps (6045) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - DEC 6, 2014
Bottle from Ales by Mail. The beer has got a deep black, dark brownish colour with an very low head and medium to thin body. Aroma of malt, roast and acid. Taste of roasted malt, mild vinegar, dark bread, green nuts, acid and leaves. Light earthy hints with an acid finish.Drinkable, but too sour for my liking for that style.

Idiosynkrasie (5328) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 9, 2014
330ml bottle. Dark brown colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, beige head. Slightly grainy, minimally spicy, dark malty aroma, unusual yeasty touch has a peppercress note. Taste is minimally roasty dark malty, subtle sweetness, a cautious touch of chocolate, again this nice, unusual yeasty touch of peppercress; dry overall, dry finish. Noteworthy somehow.

Fruity hoppy aroma. Very dark brown. Verging on black. Caramel tasting with a subtle aftertaste and leaves a slightly spicy tone. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from the Cornish Brewer’s Alliance at the Royal Cornwall Show. Deep chestnut with a little cream froth. Some fair lumps of sediment (my fault for a clumsy pour). Some quite nice flavour to this. Roasty notes from the malt with sharp citrus from the hops. Decent.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2014
Bottle at home. Poured a brown colour with a medium beige head. Aroma is dusty malts, toast, faint dust of chocolate. Flavour is roasted malts, straw, again a slight twat of chocolate. Not bad.

leaparsons (9110) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2014
Bottle. Very dark brown with a beige foam. Aromas are chocolate and light roast malts with dark cherry and some funk. A bit nutty with oak barrel. Flavours are dry, gritty chocolate with berries and coffee. Dry on the finish with paracetamol bitterness. Pretty decent.

Cask conditioned handpump Merchants Rugby 01/02/14. A slightly hazy dark ruby coloured beer with a whitish head and lace. Dry and fruity. A hint of smoke in the nose. A bit of licorice in the mouth. Actually nicely tasty and in spite of the fact that it’s neither black nor a lager is a good beer under any name.
