Leighton (18745) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2011
Cask at the Crosse Keys, JDW. Clear copper pour with a foamy, white cap. Doughy malts on the nose with berries. Pretty sweet flavor, more dough, hints of burnt sugar and ripe fruits, a bit of earthy bitterness. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Slightly baked bread in the finish, toasty sugar and lasting grass. Not bad overall.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2010
Gravity, 3rd Hinckley BF. Copper, coarse-bubbled diminishing white collar. Roasted nut aroma underpinned with orange, and some alcohol. Bright and orange soapy with sneaking chocolate, chestnut, roast and praline notes. Top bitter; great balance of bitterness, both malt and hop-derived. I’ve not had a less than good beer from BH, and this isn’t one either.

Cask, Crescent, Salford. Dark amber colour with a thin white head. Medium lace. Fragrant yet dusty aroma . Flavour was on the sweet side and had christmas cake, malt and some fruitiness. Some kind of weird chemical like tang in there which I couldn’t place. Interesting and downable.
