Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks tomer. Clear golden with a white head. Stale aroma with malt and a bit of fruitiness. Flavor has a bit of sweetish stale malt, fruitiness, and some bitter earthy hops. Light to medium-bodied.

Fresh fruity taste, peach and lemon. Smooth bittersweet finish. Above par for the style (Last drink in Hull 26.11.2015)

BlackHaddock (6238) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2015
500ml bottle: BBE Aug 16. Poured into a UK pint sleeve at home on 27th Sep 15. As the name suggests, this is a gold coloured beer, clean and bright bodied, the head an uneven foam covering of tight, white bubbles. Light malts and subtle hop notes in the aroma and taste, fruity feel and leaning towards sweet in nature. Mild herbal/spice flavourings in the mix as it warmed in the glass. Liked it.
