BlackHaddock (6902) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2017
20th March 2017: 330ml can: BBD 31st Oct 2017, shared at the monthly gathering in Chez Sophie, thanks Mat for bringing this and to Mark (whoever he is) for giving it to Mat. Slight haze to the golden amber body, white affair on top. Grapefruits rule the nose and flavour stakes, ably assisted by other tropical fruits and a trace of malty goodness. Liked it.

Psytron (2110) - Turku, FINLAND - MAR 5, 2017
Smell of citrus, fruit, some hops. Cloudy amber colour, white head. Aroma of mango, citrus, pineapple and other fruit. Extremely fruity as the label promises. Very little traditional hoppiness to be noted. Sweet, no notable bitterness. Clear IPA characteristics, though. Is pretty much exactly what it promises to be.

Heidbummer (479) - SCOTLAND - MAR 2, 2017
1/2 at the Holborn Whippet. Pours a thick dark gold, minimal head. Big pine and mango aroma. More of that on the taste with understated bitterness, and a spicy sweetness in the back. Very good.
