UPDATED: FEB 21, 2013 Bottle. Deep amber body. Medium white head. Juicy malt, tangerine, dusty hops, bubblegum, fruity. Sweetish. Dry finish. Well carbonated. Okay. Yes, there is some barley wine here. 6 3 6 3 12 ### Bottle. Deep amber to copper body. Thin white head that doesnt last long. Nose is juicy malt of good quality and ref fruit predominantly. Undercurrents are lots of white sherbet and a hint of lemon. Nuts and biscuits towards the finish. Sweet. Crisp dry finish on the palate. Like a Yorkshire version of Fullers ESB, although not as good. Tasted fresh. 7 3 6 3 13

BlackHaddock (7092) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2012
9th July 2010: Brown 500ml bottle, best before the end of June 2010, drank a week too late then! Poured into an Old Speckled Hen vase shapped pint glass: Lovely true amber body with an off-white coloured creamy head. Plenty of lacing as the beer receded down the glass. The aroma was mostly of malts, with some hop undertones. The taste was a good blend of malts and hops, malts foremost, with a hop bitterness appearing later in the mouthfeel. A word I rarely use in beer terms: smooth finish and a polished, well produced beer.

This pleasant English ale pours a hazy, deep-copper body with a thin blanket of off-white head that fades to a dusting and thin ring. Not a whole lot of aroma going on, but it smells fairly fruity and bready with some toffee, caramel candy, and buttered toast. On the palate, the malts are medium sweet, caramely, and toasty, with complementary flavors of toffee, nuts, honey, bread, brown sugar, and a light grassiness, plus a generally fruity overtone thats often associated with English beers. Its medium in weight and carbonation, and there is a slight dusty dryness in the finish. Overall, easy drinking, nice flavor, and pleasant. Seems hard to hate on a beer like this, but hard to rave about either.

50cL bottle. Amber color. Sweet malt aroma, a touch of fruit. Flavor is full of fruit. Fruit punch but much drier, less sweet. Dry, very fruitful. For this much fruit it could use a bit of alcohol, light watery bodied.

Poured a dark copper color with lots of sediment floating around. Thin off-white head. Aroma is slightly skunky with malts and bread. Some honey as well. Taste is slighlty bitter at first with biscuit, caramel, and bread. Slightly skunky towards the finish. Aftertaste is pretty interesting, very malty with grains. Creamy too. Overall decent!
