DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2008
Bottle from Arden wines. Attractive fruity aroma with lemon jelly, tomato leaf, celery, strawberry jam and banana-like esters. Half the fruitbowl, then. Bright dirty amber with good lacing and lively carbonation. Ash and soap in the mouth with hints of apple, strawberry and rubber. Can I wring any more fruit/vegetable metaphors out of this one? No, banana, strawberry, tomato, celery, lemon and apple will do. Quietly impressive bottled bitter with a good gust of sensible but fruity hops.

BlackHaddock (6384) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2012
Feb 2010: known as Red Rock Traditional Bitter back then! 500ml brown bottle, the beer is bottle conditioned so it was poured slowly and carefully into my vase shaped pint glass (Old Speckled Hen badged). The beer had a slight haze to its appearance, even though I thought I’d managed to keep all of the sediment in the bottle. The beer was a lovelly copper colour, a fine foaming off-white head sat on top. The head left some heavy lacing as the beer sank in the glass, I like to see that, shows good conditioning in my opinion. Hops aromas hit the nose and they certainly give the beer a typical English Bitter flavour, meaning a bitterness to the ale. Simple and pleasant, the 4.2%ABV suits it, a good session bitter.
