Bottled 19/05/12. A light golden beer with little head. Digestive biscuity malt notes. Very lemon and orangey hops. Nice citrus bitterness. A bit of spice too. Well balanced and tasty although the citrus seems a bit forced. BlackHaddock (7574) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2012
Drank in Feb 2012: 500ml Brown bottle (bottle conditioned): BBD Aug 2012. Poured slowly into my Abbot Ale glass tankard. No sediment left the bottle: pale golden in colour, with a good, deep head of white foam, rising through the clear body could be seen bubble trails even though the glass has no agitator in its base. The head stayed for the whole tasting and produced some heavy lacing on the glass.
The smells were of citrusy hops and yeast with a slight malt sweetness lurking in the background.
The taste was very simular to the aromas: hops first, then fresh yeasts followed by some malt hints, the beer finishes in the mouth with a pleasant hop twang of bitterness. This isn’t one dimensional, the flavours move around in the mouth with the citrus hop content being the strongest element, yet without completely taking over.
The 4.5%ABV is there, but it isn’t totally apparent, the hops reducing the impact of the alcohol and the yeast conditioning in the bottle seemingly making it taste fresh and young.
Not bad at all, glad I let it settle for 6 months or so before opening it.

Quite pleasant. Not stongly flavoured. Well-balanced citric hop flavour. Can’t taste any malt.
