COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fresh and feisty, our twist on an American Amber Ale is aromatic and uplifting. Five malts mingle for a rich, complex flavor. Named after the Effra river, which now flows beneath urban Brixton, this ale is perfect for deep thirsts.

3.3
BlackHaddock (7951) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2017
Cask half-pint in The Brixton Craft on 22nd Jan 2017. Deep amber body, white head that lasted. Malts all the way here, well until the slightly bitter hop finish anyway. Toffee like esters in the nose and initial taste, a bag of mixed fruits within the aroma and flavours also. More going on than meets the eye in this brew. Liked it.

Smooth and malty, not much hop going on, a fraction tart with the fruitiness. Fine but didn’t especially enjoy this.
