Keg at the Old Coffee House. Hazy pale gold with a small white rim. Pretty much what it says on the Label and just what I needed while rushing to the theatre. Lovely stuff!

maneliquor (3065) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 12, 2013
Keg at Old Coffee House. Hazy yellow with a small, firm white head on top. Nose is quite vinegary with some vegetal notes coming through underneath lemon biscuit and dough. Taste picks up with plenty of apricot and lemon cake. Tarty and dry with a light acidic apricot finish. Some shortbread and nutty undertones. Very sessionable. Nice stuff

Theydon_Bois (8276) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2013
Keg tap at the Old Coffee House, Soho, 09/10/13. Hazed golden with a thin off white covering. Nose is earthy, tarte apricot, vegetal notes, light balsamic tang. Not the best nose, deliberated between 5 and 6. Taste is better, lemon sherbet, light acedic notes, tarte apricot, charred straw. Light to medium bodied, fine carbonation with a little prickle, crisp finish with a little acidic throat scrape. Decent enough sour.

Draught @ CBC2013. Pours hazy yellow with a small frothy white head that quickly dissipates without leaving much trace. Smell is slightly sour, slightly malty and slightly fruity with buttered crackers, dried apricots, lemon juice, cereal, dry wood, wheat flour and hints of melted butter. Taste is sour and fruity with buttered crackers, sour milk, dried apricots, hay, wheat flour, dry soil, clotted cream and lemon juice. Mouthfeel is slightly crisp, dry, slightly tart and light bodied. Finish is sour and fruity with wheat crackers, lemon juice, dried apricots, hay, lemon zest, unflavoured yoghurt and dry soil. Not a fan of butter in my sours.

Leighton (10769) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2013
Tap Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013 - Session 3. Pours hazy gold with a fine, white cream head. Tangy lacto nose, hints of tart fruits. Bracing but balanced sourness in the flavor, light sweetness, good jammy apricot essence. Light bodied with average carbonation. Super clean and fresh to finish with punchy tart bite, more tangy fruits. Superb.
