Leighton (18222) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2014 Cask at the Euston Tap, London. Pours clear yellow with a rich, pure white foam cap. Aroma holds a lot of hay and mild citrus. Flavor is like juice, orange juice, nice and sweet, mild bitterness of zesty citrus and hay. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Finishes sweet, semi-sticky, plenty more juicy orange, tangerine and ripe lemon. Very good beer. (3.8)

Cask at the Metropolitan Bar, JDW - London. Pours perfectly clear, yellow-gold with a white foam head. Not great this time around. Some cheap white bread pale malt character with nips of creamy vanilla, white sugar and faint straw. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation. Lemon meringue in the finish with light, doughy white bread. Meh. (3.1)

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2011
Cask handpull, The Chandlers Arms, Shearsby, arse end of Leicester, 08/05/11. Brilliant, finely lacing gold. Soft spliffy hop aroma with fresh grass, hay, slight minerals and pine. Less overtly hoppy taste; watery cherry, ganja and malted milk notes combined with a seawater-dappled stone and Alka Seltzer minerality. Gnaw of almond showing. A bit limp after the AllGates PG.
