Leighton (10868) - London, Greater London, - MAR 4, 2012
Cask at The Cleveland Arms, London. Pours clear amber-brown with a medium, off-white foam. Lightly toasted malts, light fruits and leaves in the nose. Sweet flavor, some toasty dough, light tangy dark fruits, some subtle toffee. Light bodied with fine, smooth carbonation. Clean, sweet, malty finish, with undertones of toffee and toasted leaves. Not bad. Pretty basic mild.

Mild and fruity smelling, with a dark deep golden amber colour. Leaves a fruity taste with a lingering bitterness. Very pleasant. I think I'll have another. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kommer inte ihåg var jag drack denna men antagligen på en pub nära russel square. En stor besvikelse.

wimpyjoe (3788) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2013
Dark red with no head. It has an old ale sweetness about it, certainly more in its nose than flavours.

Cask @ Wellington Arms, Bedford. Dark brown. Aroma of dry leather, mocha, wood. Taste sweet but dry, a near-perfect balance. Lovely on the palette.
