Bottles from The Cheese Shop, Chester and Fenwicks, Newcastle (2005). Amber coloured with a sweet red fruit and toffee flavour, malty notes and strong peppery hops, sulphur and sweetness on the warming finish. Nice.

Nocturne (1134) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2015
Cask. Mid to dark copper shade. Patchy covering of foam. Notes of dark toffee, a kind of hedgerow-like blackcurrant fruitiness, and minor hints of spicy anise. Never setting the world alight, but an interesting enough mix of flavours that combine well.

Another house beer of the Bulls Head in Mobberley. Classic bitter, which is hoppy, cerealy and malty
Earlier Rating: 6/5/2011 Total Score: 2.7

Hanoi (596) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2013
Nose is cereal, slight caramel,grain. Taste is as promised, is honey, red currents, apples a little citrus leading to a short lightly bitter sweetish finish hoppy finish with a slight metallic note. Mouthfeel is slightly to carbonated. Itís largely good but the metallic note really lets it down. In a strange way it reminds me of the bitter my dad used to drink in the 80s....

Pours chestnut brown. Smells and tastes like a real proper bitter, slightly doughy with a medium dry bitter ending.

ManVsBeer (5669) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2013
Glowing copper coloured ale with a light bitterness. Has a fantastic creamy head and slightly thin in its texture. It has a light fruitness for its flavour, more evident in its aftertaste, but not so in aroma.

BlackHaddock (4875) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2012
Two hand-pulled pints in The Cock Hotel Wellington on 20 April 2012. Golden brew with a good deep head of white bubbles on top: tried to stay the distance and almost managed too. The nose a mixed bag of smells: mild malts with a pleasant fruity hop content. The taste is also a good, interesting blend with again the malts coming first followed by the bittering hops with a more citrus hint than in the smell. Well balanced and semi-sweet in the after-taste, makes a change from the now almost normal blonde hoppy brews being brewed up and down the country.

Had this bitter in the Three Judges, Glasgow February 2005. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear amber in colour with thin white head. Malty aroma. Thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a rounded balance with digestive biscuit and slight redcurrant fruit flavours evident. Not too dry in the aftertaste with a metallic hop resin bite in the finish. finish has a tart metallic note in the palate. Not one for me though.
