Bottle from Aldis, Inverurie. It pours golden - amber with a small white head. The aroma is bready, sweet, rich tea biscuit, cereal and some honey. The taste is smooth, butter - sweet, lemon peel, toasty grain, cereal, hay, peppery spice, cracker, honey and some pear/apple with a dry finish. Medium body and average carbonation. A pretty simple malty gold. Fair.

BlackHaddock (6796) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2015
500ml bottle: BBE Oct 15. Poured into a UK pint sleeve at home on 6th Mar 15, during Scottish tasting session I had with myself. Blonde in name, golden in colour, the head a fast fading white covering. Not much in the nose, some mild maltiness with a whiff of hops below maybe. The taste however was fine, malty lead with a good bitter centre and finish. Toffee notes in the flavour, but not overly sweet. Decent and enjoyable: would be happy to drink this again and again, a good session ale.

Golden in colour, citrusy and hoppy, quite more aromatic than many beers i have tried recently. Aroma translated to the taste and palate. Easy beer to drink.
