"An easy to drink, refreshing cask ale with a fresh, fruity aroma that leaves a long, satisfying bitter finish. It is traditionally brewed to deliver a clean taste and is light and dry in flavour with a subtle taste of hops."

BlackHaddock (3509) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2013
Hand-pulled half-pint in The Kings Arms, Oxford 23rd Nov 13. Haven’t had this for years and as I was in a Wells/Youngs pub I thought I’d re-visit it along with a Youngs Winter Warmer. Clear gold, pale gold that is with a thin white head that stayed the distance. The nose is subtle (or weak depending on your view), some mild maltiness and hints of grain with slight floral hops. Taste wise it is also delicate in flavour, this isn’t a robust Bitter. Malts again lead the way with a mini citrus hop feel underneath which comes to the fore towards the finish giving each sip a dry smack at the end.

Nothing to say which hasn’t already been said. Slightly grainy but clean for the most part. Not bad but nothing to go back too
