BlackHaddock (7092) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2016
Cask half-pint in the Three Fishes, Shrewsbury: 28th July 2016. Light, pale blonde, smooth white head. I noted a wheat and oatmeal sort of aroma and taste: but I had a niggle in my head about the true flavour. On returning to the bar and reading the pump clip I immediately recognised cucumber flavours within the beer: it does what it says on the pump clip. Not really my thing, but my fault for not reading the blurb at the point of dispense. Scored objectively.

gegwilson (3645) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2016
Cask at the Northern Craft Beers Festival at the Hawkshead Brewery. Straw coloured with a thin white head. Grassy citrus aroma. The taste has more grassy citrus with a slightly odd cucumber finish. A bit strange.

Wish I had read the tasting notes first. Not a fan of cucumber. Usually a great supporter of Thornbridge beers, but this one is a poor addition to their great range of beers. Must remember to leave this one aside next time.
