BlackHaddock (7583) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2012
Brown 500ml bottle, obtained from Beers of Europe, best before 28 Jul 2011, drank and reviewed 4 Jul 2011: poured into na UK pint sleeve glass. My bottle clearly called this Tom Wood’s Lincoln Red.
True reddy brown coloured body, with a large off-white bubbley head on top, looks a treat.
Aroma of roasted, toasted malts with semi-sweet molasses thrown in.
The taste follows the smell, malts and molasses, but with a hop dry bite towards the end of the mouthfeel. As the mouth really dries between gulps the hop bitterness turns into an almost citrus mini-sourness (pink grapefruit?). Very nice in deed.

A dark brown to red coloured beer with a thickish, off white head. A slightly sweet, malty nose, some toffee and a little perfumed. A bitter smoky malt taste, again a bitter sweet toffee and caramel, with a touch of liquorice, then a slightly spicy hop flavour. The finish is bitter and dry. (Bottle BCA - purchased from the Butcher’s stall at the 2006 Sandringham Food Fair). DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2006

Small white head. Mid brown amber coloured with some alcohol present. Hoppy with some dryness in a crisp and bitter malt finish. Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2006
Cask conditioned @ Standing Order (JDW), Soton. Brown colour. Fruity malt aromas. Berries and raisins with bisuits and a little tofeee. Fairly dry in the mouth with plenty of old fashioned english bitterness. Tasty. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2006
A Mes rate: Cask at Baker St. JDW. All off milk and beef to me. An odd thing indeed. Think this may have been a little out of order.

Cask conditioned - handpump - JDW Northampton. A dark brown coloured beer with a russet hue and a whitish head. The aroma is sharp and fruity with orangey notes as well as beeries. The taste is very bitter with good English hops. Earthy also. A nice beer.
