BlackHaddock (3592) - Shropshire, - SEP 17, 2012
A beautiful sunny afternoon on Friday 7th September 2012 saw my father and I join in R.A.T.2012 (Rail Ale Trail part 2). Split between three bars along the Wolverhampton to Shrewsbury railway line: they had over 50 different beers to try: this was one of them. Half-pint, gravity fed in the fest tent behind ‘The Odfellows’ in Shifnal. Light amber, golden brown, you choose: a white head tried to sit on top, but failed to stay around too long. Not too sure how this became CAMRA Champion Beer a few years back as it wasn’t any better than other beers on the day I tried it. Nice blend of flavours with the hops foremost in the smell and taste stakes. Well balanced and a pleasant enough session beer but nothing to set it apart from the rest of the field.

SlackerMads (1510) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2014
Cask. Clear golden with a small white head. Bready, herbal hops, dry flowers, hay. Light/medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, light/medium sweet and bitter. Light dry and fairly long hoppy finish. Nothing wrong with this.

Cask at JDW, Streatham Hill. Pours amber with a white head. Light caramel and light grass aroma. Light body, light carbonation. Grassy with lemon and a light herbiness. Quite fresh and clean. OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask Pint at The Watchman (JDW), New Malden, Surrey in Sept 2012 - Golden brown in colour. Aroma of malt & hops. Initially malty flavour fades as citrus notes and hoppiness take over, leading to a lasting hoppy bitter finish. OK. Drinkable.

dogbomb (938) - ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2014
275ml Bottle. Amber beer with a decent white head. Nose is sweet pineapple confectionery. Something in the nose I can’t quite put my finger on too. Maybe sherbets? Taste is sweet malts with a bitter underbelly. Malts are heavy in this brew though - and you have to battle to get the bitterness through. Very quffable sweet ale though. The nose is rather moreish.

jjsint (723) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2014
Cask @ the wonderful Wellington Arms, Bedford. Colour of dark gold/amber. Decent amount of head with extreme lacing. Light fresh grassy aroma. Unremarkable but inoffensive. Taste is nicely balanced between sweet and bitter. The maltiness shines through but is tempered by the bitterness. An excellent bitter from a class brewery.

mighty_meadow (179) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - JAN 5, 2014
2nd beer from my Christmas gift set and much better than the 1st bottle. A lot hoppier than I expected which was a pleasant surprise. Nice carbonation leaving a thin white head. I could drink a few of these.

DandyLion (515) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2013
Bottle at home. Orangey brown colour. Light, thinnish palate. Tastes ok though, slightly malty but with a nice dry hoppy finish. I quite liked this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
