Cask at the Grand Union, Fallowfield. Reddish brown, little aroma, overwhelming caramel flavour. I’ll try to remember this one as it’s not remotely something I want to drink again.

stravale (2701) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - MAR 11, 2012
Cask @ JDW Elgin
Copper bronze...clear..creamy white head
Aroma - soft fruity malts...little on the nose
Taste - light bitter hops..bit of fruity malt when it hits the tongue...that’s it...watery...bland for the abv
Palate - thin watery body...soft carb. Finish...light berry fruit and a bit of biscuit...quite dull
Overall - Bland economy brewing.....a waste of money

Leighton (17195) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2012
Cask at The Granite City, Aberdeen. Clear copper pour with a fine, white foam head. Toasty, bready malt aroma. Nicely balanced flavor, lightly sweet, bready malts, some light fruits, soft leafy bitterness. Light bodied with fine, smooth carbonation. Sweet, faintly dry finish, some toffee, fruits, doughy toast, some berries. I really like it. A very easygoing bitter.
