StueyD (1566) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2014
A mid orange brown coloured beer with a weak white head. A light hop aroma, hints of citrus fruit, then a biscuity malt element comes through. Dry mouthfeel. The taste follows on from the aroma with a dry biscuity malt flavour of caramel and cereal, then a tart hop flavour comes through later, that then lasts into the finish. Tasted at the King William IV, Sedgeford, Norfolk.

BlackHaddock (6317) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2013
Gravity poured pint on 20 Apr 2013 at the CAMRA AGM bar in Norwich. Light brown body with a copper hint in a strong light source, the head was a weak, thin affair from the off. No strong aroma, faint traces of citrus and wood as the beer warmed. The taste more floral than the nose suggested: mildly dry in the mouth with a semi-dry finish. A long way from interesting, but an OK refreshing brew that isnít going to upset anyone or test your taste buds.

theatmosphere (50) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2012
Not the most exciting aroma, but an appealing deep copper appearance. Slightly more lively carbonation than expected but ends up feeling rather thin. I drink it at the Lendal Cellars in York but more because itís a change rather than because I think it is especially good. Pretty average overall - brewed in a good cause though (for the Norfolk Wildlife Trust).

Cask at the Champion of the Thames, Cambridge, UK on 11th May 2012. Copper with thin off-white ring and film & patterned lacing. Sweet malty aroma. Malty and fruity with some late hops in-mouth, leaving a tangy and herby finish. Zingy mouthfeel and medium body. Nice "growing" ale - you can just end up liking it.

tombyars (1582) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2012
Tasted this bitter in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) in November 2010. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear copper in colour with a thick white head. Slight hint of bramley apples with a touch of nutmeg. Thin mouthfeel and excellent lacing. Pale malts lead to a robust malty flavour with citrus notes of grapefruit and lime. Spicy almost peppery hops appear in the dry aftertaste. Good combination of malt and hops gives a balanced bitter sweet finish. An excellent sesion ale.
