BlackHaddock (7753) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2017
Third of a cask pint at the Scottish Real Ale Festival in Edinburgh’s Corn Exchange on 7th July 2017. Nice red hue to the copper body, white head that faded away a bit swiftly. The aroma had malts and fruits playing with each other, the taste similar: caramel and oranges came to mind as I sipped my glass. Decent.
