BlackHaddock (6546) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2014
Half-pint at the 2014 Lincoln Beer Festival. Good looking dark, deep brown beer with a full white crown on top. Malty from the start, this is a fruity, wholesome brew that oozes flavour. The hops keep the maltiness in check to produce a lovely blend that is easy to drink, mildly bitter towards the finish.

Beesbeer (452) - WALES - JAN 20, 2013
It has to be the quality of the water filtered down through sandstone that gives this beer such a great crystal clean flavour. Chocolate bitter sweetness and barley wine warmth and depth. Quite a sharp green hop citrus ending that lingers on the palate. Quick to make you squiffy!

Pours like a brewed ice tea, complete with tea-ish head. Scent is caramel, pepper, dark fruit. Taste is very bready and dry... Sweet front, bitter back. A very good ale.

kwik-lime (1728) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2012
Cask in a pub opposite Exeter Cathedral whose name I forget. Full-bodied for the style and quite sweet, with hints of bread, raisin and orange coming through. Nice bitter.

ManVsBeer (8809) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2012
Copper-brown in colour with a strong aftertaste, although the strength is hidden somewhat by the fruity sweet flavours which are also evident in its aroma.
