Lovely sweet bready, slightly nutty aroma. Beautiful soft palate. More breadiness in the taste. Lovely twiggy bitterness. Classic bitter, makes me want to drink more. Great at 3.7%.

jjsint (2673) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2014 Cask @ Lamb, Stoke Goldington. Pours a light brown. Not a lot of head. Malty, vinous smell. Dough, slight astringency, hint of something herby. Soft fruit and toffee. Taste is sweet with a tempering savoury/spicy flavour that lifts it a bit above the twiggy/ordinary brown bitter. Bitterness in the palette. Pretty good, especially for the low ABV.

BlackHaddock (6774) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2012
3rd Half at a beerfest in The George Inn, Eccleshall (April 2012). Hand pulled. Amber body with an off-white crown on top. Malts in the nose and taste, good flavours for the alcohol level: this is a fine session beer and I could quiet happily stayed on it all night, but there were other goodies to try!

Cask, handpump at The White Horse, Banbury, Oxon 05.03.12 Pours brown, good clarity with a slim white head. This is a textbook BBB, lightly fruity, lightly bitter, some caramel sweetness and with barely a whiff of excitement about it. Despite my rather boring comments on this beer, it was served in good nick, looked great and there was nothing wrong with it all all other than the fact it was a BBB. A6 A5 T5 P3 Ov11 3.0
