BlackHaddock (6351) - Shropshire, - APR 10, 2012
Brown 500ml bottle, best before Sep 2012 and poured into an ’Abbot Ale’ glass tankard in Oct 2011. Looked fine, a good light/golden amber body with a thinish white crown of foaming bubbles on top. The small was of floral hops and mixed fruits (apples and pears?). The taste was mostly hops with a dryness from the first sip which lasted until the mouth was completely empty. Claims to be a summer drink, which I suppose it is, being light in colour and refreshing. Not a lot of flavours within it, a bit one dimensional with the hops dominating everything else that might have been in the brew. OK, but not something I’d buy a crate of.

500ml bottle from SPAR at Blue Dolphin caravan park near Filey. Golden colour, white foam head and citric hop nose. Taste is biscuity malt caramel with citrusy hop bitterness. Light bodied, soft to medium bodied, dry finish. Quite drinkable.

Cask @Le Bon Bock (Rome). Pours deep golden with a little head. Fruity aroma, apple, light peach, orange zest, malt. Flavour is quite well balanced, medium malt profile with a good bitter end. Medium to light body, medium carbonation. Nice one.

500ml bottle shared with AshtonMcCobb. Pours clear gold, thin white head. Artomas are a bit eggy, custard maybe, light lemon. Taste is light sweet. Not a right lot going on.

Medium offwhite head. Clear paleish yellow body. Fruity floral strawy aroma with herbal notes. Sweet fruity floral grape taste with spicy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry-sweet fruity papery floral aftertaste with grassy gingery notes. Nice, drinkable, refreshing. Very nice beer. (0.5l bottle, from Meny Strømmen Storsenter.)

Rune (11120) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 28, 2014
500ml bottle bought at Kjeller 5, Tromsø. Fair white lacing-head to an almost clear golden body. Moderate aroma of fresh orange with earthy malts beneath. Peach and lemon to the taste profile joined by herbal hops. Mild drying hoppy finish. Medium to thin bodied. Crispy in the mouth. Satisfying (shared with Finn H. at his place, Tromsø 27.03.2014).
