Beersiveknown (2990) - NORTHERN IRELAND - SEP 27, 2011
Light amber with banana and gentle cloves in the nose. Plenty of black pepper in the body, but also a slew of tropical fruit flavours with pineapple and tangerine particularly boisterous. A chat with the brewer revealed that these flavours came from the high dose of Bobek hops with First Gold and Pioneer providing ample support in the bittering department.

On cask at Euston Tap. 4.5%. Hazy mid gold with lasting white. Very lively in the pour. Its not great. Some esters. Its ok ish but not really my thing. Some hop sting on finish. Bit of dirty muddyness in there. Bit dirty. But otherwise the english golden ale / saison mix doesnt quite work.

Leighton (10969) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2011
Cask at the Euston Tap, London. Pours a just slightly cloudy gold with a tight, white cap. Aroma has a lovely yeast character to it with subtle notes of spices, coriander. Medium sweet, plenty of yeast, mild lemon zest, faint grassy bitterness. Medium bodied with smooth carbonation. Dries slightly in the finish, there’s some slight dough, sugar, grass. Excellent beer, super satisfying.
