BlackHaddock (3183) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2012
3rd Half at a beerfest in The George Inn, Eccleshall (April 2012). Hand pulled. Amber body with an off-white crown on top. Malts in the nose and taste, good flavours for the alcohol level: this is a fine session beer and I could quiet happily stayed on it all night, but there were other goodies to try!
