BlackHaddock (6375) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2015
500ml bottle: BBE Sep 2015. Poured into an Abbot Ale badged glass tankard at home on 10 Mar 2015: shared with no one! Nice clear amber golden body with a full, deep foaming head, off-white in colour. Light malty nose with a malty lead in the taste also, some slightly bittering hops come through but this is a pleasant blend with a malt base, the hops playing second fiddle most of the time.

ManVsBeer (8766) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2015 Bottle from Booths, Media City. It’s almost an amber beer in style and look with a pleasant orange citrus taste, but its texture is also that of a bitter, but not a best bitter. Tangy and tasty.

50cl bottle from the Tatton estate shop. Bright amber with a thin cream head; pleasant malty aroma; crisp citrus taste to start with a smooth malty body; and a gentle but lasting grassy bitterness. A rather good bitter.
