BlackHaddock (4924) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2015
500ml bottle poured into a UK pint sleeve at home on 12th June 2015. Clear amber body, smooth white blanket of foam on top. Caramel like malty molasses in the aroma, toffee notes also. The taste is leaning towards sweetness from the start, a drier and slightly bitter finish awaits you at the end of each sip. My sweet tooth liked this, the semi-sweet maltiness pushing the hops well back in the ’Game Bird’ pecking order (see what I did there?) throught the brew until the last drop.

ManVsBeer (5818) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2015
Cask @ Milne’s Bar, Edinburgh. Golden with a thin head. Not much in the nose but has a decent light tropical fruitiness in its taste. Quite crisp.

Oakes (13537) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 3, 2014
Bubbly head, bronze-amber colour. Dark stone fruits and lively pale and amber malts - balance and complexity. Tastes a bit simpler, with a dash if caramel, diacetyl, and not as bright a hop character.

Terrible name, as most of them are. Realised whilst drinking it that I could make beer like this at home for about 30p a bottle. This cost me £2.90. Why? Pretty boring beer.
