BlackHaddock (6398) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2015
500ml bottle: BBE 08/2015. Poured into a UK pint sleeve at home during 03/2015. Pale amber/golden body with a thin white topping. Nose and taste both leaning towards a caramel/toffee flavour, the hops arriving later in the taste to give a mild bitter finish. Decent enough blend, but lacked a real bite or depth of flavour.

wasn’t expecting much from this after reading the bottle, but turned out to be a pleasant refreshing light bitter, much like a golden ale, smooth and very drinkable
