BlackHaddock (6629) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2016
330ml bottle split between two of us at an Irish beer tasting session at my place on 11th Nov 2016. Despite visiting the brewpub in Cork (back in 2012) I have never rated any of their beers before. I know I had some when there, but no evidence of ratings anywhere. Anyway this semi-sweet malty brew was fine: red/amber body, off-white head. Red berries wrapped in caramel molasses and a woody flavoured hop leaf flavour, aroma similar in nature. Liked it.

Marko (5247) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 4, 2016
Bottle, bought at a local store in Split, brewed at Sharps. Waited for me for 7 months, as I forgot to rate it last December. Oh well. Coppery amber body with a small off white head, small but lasting. A bit fizzy. Dried fruit and caramel in the aroma, some orange too. Creamy taste, raisins, fruity, light mouthfeel, but full body for the ABV technically, honey and caramel, solid carbonation, not excessive. Not a bad beer overall by any means, miles ahead of that Doom Bar garbage, not superb, but if you like a solid, light malt-driven beer and dont have a better choice, why not.
