Unpasteurised 500ml bottle with BB of 31/12/15. Pale golden appearance with ample head retiontion. Nose has light golden malts, flowery hops and a subtle honey presence. Palate is pleasantly smooth and refreshing and offers moderately sweet malts up front with a firm floral hop bitterness to the finish. A nice session ale.

BlackHaddock (6774) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2012
3rd and final beer of a Random Beer Tasting Evening (20th April 2010). This bottle conditioned beer was poured into my new Abbot Ale glass tankard. A thin white head sat on top of a lager golden body, none of the fine sediment rich in vitamin B left the bottle, so the beer was clear and bright. The only smell I could find was of hops and a flowery, floral hint as the beer warmed in the glass. Refreshing and hoppy in the taste, no great flavours otherwise. I was a bit disappointed with this beer, it was however taken after darker/stronger beers so my drinking order might not have helped?

Cask gravity, The Duke of Wellington, Norwich. First average beer of the night. Brilliant orange amber with fine white lace and rim. Fruity snout with cherry hints, fresh but tired-smelling. Candy floss, cherry and peach fruit; flowery hop and tea notes. Nice clean buttery biscuit maltiness to finish. It just tastes like this.

Cask conditioned at The Kings Head, Norwich. Orange gold with white head. Sweetish honeyed beer, quite thick on the palate. There is a syrupy, background note, we thought strawberry, with a touch of caramel. Pretty reasonable overall.
