Decent enough.

BlackHaddock (7092) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2016
Hand-pulled half-pint in The Pheasant, Wellington Shropshire on 19th June 2016. Light golden pour, clear and clean looking, the head a well formed white foam blanket. Mild fruity front to the nose and taste, more hops than malts: OK but lacked depth and oomph.

Cask @ New Brew-m, Burnley. Clear golden with a thin head. Has a very dry fruitiness in its nose with a less stated taste thats more crisp than flavoursome.

On cask at the Brunswick Inn
This bitter was so-so and mostly unremarkable. Lacking anything to set it apart from the other cask bitters around town Id say you have no reason to seek it out unless you are just getting off the train and want to start ticking right away.

Aroma / Appearance - The golden body was flat and lifeless. Fresh apple chips, soft hops, and sweet malts were generally bland but also without any glaring flaws.

Flavor / Palate - The mixture of hops and malt that was present did not do much to shake up the senses. Even the transition to a sweet honey finish was late in coming. Almost like a glass of Honey Crisps it had little depth and disappeared quickly. Dont bother unless you want to tick a new brewery.

From cask at the Brunswick tavern derby. Pale, not much to it but a nice easy lunchtime pint.

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 26, 2011
[cask at the Brunswick Inn, Derby] Hazy amber beer, grassy hop on the nose. Something of the hop flavour about it at first, but the dryness soon takes over and it fades in the aftertaste somewhat. Shame, as that almost holds it back a bit. It has hops in the title, but I actually preferred the weaker White Feather. It wasnt at all bad though, having said that [18042009]

From cask at Brunswick Inn. Pours clear and golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is mild hoppy and fruity. Light citrusy, vague herbal to grassy in flavour. Ends dry and bitter.
