BlackHaddock (7416) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2012
36th CAMRA Cotswold beer festival (July 2012) in the lovely 15th century Tithe Barn: the setting for my tasting of this beer. Gravity poured pint: golden yellow body with a thin white crown on top. The nose was a pleasant, yet fairly weak mix of floral notes and lightly baked pale malts. The taste was also fairly weak (compared to so many other beers at the festival): a bland, blend of beery ingredients which didn’t really excite or balance out too well. I suspect it is a watered down and slightly tampered with Uley Pigs Ear.

Cask conditioned at The Corinium Hotel, Cirencester. Gold with white head. Light floral, flowery bitter, with a simple peachy note and malty sweetness. Perhaps a little grainy, but quite acceptable as an easy pint on a long walk. Does the job.

Cask @ GBBF 2010, Great British Beer Festival, Earls Court Exhibition Centre, London, England.

Clear medium yellow color with a small, virtually none lacing, fully diminishing, white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted, white nuts, earthy - damp stain - fusty. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average duration. Body is medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is flat. [20100804]

Cask @ GBBF 2010. Pours a golden color with a small off-white head. Has a fruity malty aroma. Fruity malty caramel flavor with some hoppy hints. Has a fruity malty finish with some weak hoppy hints in the aftertaste.

[email protected] Golden colour, minor head. Aroma is peas, quite bready and earthy as well. Flavouris quite much the same. Quite dull and boring.

Cask handpump at GBBF ’10. Gold. Dusty corn aroma, quite unattractive. Same taste. Like a muesli bar from Lidl. Some bitterness. Not great.

From cask. Pours clear and golden yellow with a fully gone head. Aroma is mild butterish and slight hoppy citrusy. Sweet malty, butterish and slight fruity. Mild bitterness into the finish.

Cask (handpump) , GBBF Day 3, August 2006. As others have mentioned, this was indeed the end of the barrel, and it showed. Golden colour, with a thick rocky head. The aroma wasn’t too clean. Hough I detected some honey note sin there. Dry and thin, with a grainy malt character on the palate and some very listless hops trying to make an impression, but failing. Overall, oh so tired if not entirely undrinkable. I’m sure it can be better than this

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2010 1. Cask Stillage at the RUFC, Macclesfield 11/05/2002 Golden coloured with a pale aroma. Slightly sweet on the palate. Hop finish. 2. Cask Handpump at the GBBF, Earl’s Court 04/08/2010 Pale aroma. Golden coloured pale and sweet on the palate with a hint of dryness in a corn flavoured finish.

Ungstrup (37937) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 12, 2007
Cask at GBBF 2006. A hazy pale orange beer with a bubbly thin off white head. The aroma is quite light with notes of malt and hops - too light for my liking. The flavor is sweet malty with quite strong notes of citrus, leading to a dry bitter end, but the body is thin. A thin but quite refreshing beer.
