Pint at The Royal Hill Inn, Oswestry. A good British bitter with grass, malts, grain and a dry bitterness to see it home.

Cask at the Bell, Leominster, Herefordshire on 6th April 2013. Slightly hazy gold with thin white head. Cheesy yeasty aroma. Sweet fruits and malts in-mouth with citric tang. Bittersweet finish with developing sharp bitter note.

niquillis (812) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2013
On cask at The Fox, Chetwynd Aston. Pours golden amber, white head. A hint of caramel, slightly astringent. An average bitter. Disappointing as other Three Tuns ales have been very good.

BlackHaddock (3500) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2012
12th May 2012 saw me on a pub crawl of Shrewsbury: First up was the ‘Castle Vaults’ and a hand pulled pint of this. Golden body, bright and clean looking: small white head. Nose of woody, earthy, nuttiness: with a hint of malty molasses. More malts in the taste than the smell: easy blend of flavours, fruitier than the aroma too, with a semi-bitter finish. I like Three Tuns brews in general and this is no exception.

Cask (GBBF2011, Wed)
Bright gold. Mellow honey aroma, but a bit boring. Taste is tangy citrus hops and some light malts that stay in the finish. Not exciting, but certainly not bad. Nice bitterness in the finish.
