Based on the "Golding Hop" it’s lightly pronounced floral flavour/aroma is derived from dry hopping with Golding hops, which really show through on drinking. A well-rounded beer with a satisfying after taste.

BlackHaddock (7690) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2016
Cask half-pint in The Three Crowns, Oakham on 15th March 2016. Clear amber hue to the deep orange/brown body, good lacing from the off-white head. Aroma was an easy blend of light malts, nuts and grassy hops. The flavour was semi-sweet yet with a bitter undertone. A typical English Bitter, I liked it.

jjsint (3493) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2016
Cask at the Parcel Yard, Leicester. Ruddy brown, thin and translucent with a sizeable white head. Vinous metallic smell, not unpleasant but not particularly enticing from a beer perspective. Bittersweet herbal taste with a full earthy hop finish. Medium body. As basic as you like. Nothing exciting about this recipe, but I enjoyed it enough as a one-off.
