The use of pale and crystal malts and un-malted roasted barley gives a darker, reddish brown hue and adds a softer, nuttier flavour to Black Rock. It also has a full body. Golding is used as the bittering hop. Late hopping with Fuggle and Mount Hood gives a floral, grassy and herbal nose.

    500 ml capped bottle. Poured in a nonick pint glass an unclear and amber-golden-copper coloured Bitter with an amazing four fingers, fine, dense, thick and beige foamy head that had no end and tons of micro bubbles. Active carbonation. Good lacing. The aroma is moderate caramel malts and toasted malts. The flavour is earthy hops, a bready note and a touch of peat and smoke. The mouthfeel is creamy,thin, smooth and bitter. The texture is watery. This light bodied Bitter has a dry bitter and toasty finish. An easy drinkable Bitter.

    Deep hazy amber, small creamy white head. Odd but quite pleasant aroma. Grapefruit and smoke with undertones of rubber and minerals. Saffron and cedar wood in flavour. Thin and light body. Dry bitter and woody aftertaste with a hint of grassy hops. Quite interesting, lot’s of character in this one
