Leighton (18221) - London, Greater London, - FEB 27, 2012
Cask at CBC, London. Pours clear russet with a modest, white foam head. Quite a lovely aroma of lightly toasted malts, caramel and leaves. Light to medium sweet flavor, veery nive toasted caramel, toasty bread, mild leafy bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Beautiful carbonation. Sweet, lightly bitter finish, more toasted caramel and modest bread, subtle fruits, toast. This is one of the best, most well balanced bitters I’ve ever had.

mR_fr0g (8882) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2016
Cask handpull at the moon under water Watford. Dull copper coloured pour with a thin greyish head. Aroma is nutty brown bread, unrefined sugars, some dried fruits. Flavour is composed of nutty malts, flinty mineral, tangy berry, dry mineral finish. Palate is semi sweet, moderate cask condition, rounded. OK.

Chestnut appearance. Malty aroma with pine notes. Medium bite on palate despite lower strength. All on all nice session drink. Can see why it did well at Camra 2015 with silver

Pours an amber colour. Taste is well balanced with a bitter finish. A classic example of a Yorkshire bitter
