Keg at Cocks Tavern. Very hazy (ahem) cherry coloured beer with a tidy pale pink head. Sour fruity yohgurt nose. Palate is crisp and dry. Tingling sourness, wine type of sourness not the vinegar type thank God. Tart sherbet cherry and other red fruits. More sherbet before the dry finish. Weird nose but I actually enjoyed the sherbet fruit on this one. A second one later on that same day proved a bit too much yoghurt. I think the trick with this one is to drink cold, it suppresses the yoghurt.

King William IV, Leyton. 3.7% - tasting cleaner now and sans the yohgurt which is good but also the sherbet which is a shame!

Keg @ The Cock Tavern. The pour’s medium hazy red with a tiny white head. The nose is sharp acetic lemon juice, bright sugar, soft fruit and malevolent buggy aromas. The taste is very tart, sour cherry and lemon rind. Hints of sweet sugar and marshmallow. Pissy wheat tang on the finish. Light body, refreshing. Overall, nice, if basic.

Tap at brewdog. Nice pinkish red with small white head. Aroma is quite rank, like cheesey feet, off fruit juice, bad milk. Taste is much better, pleasant cherry and light funk. Very tart with a yeasty finish.

Leighton (14361) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2012
Keg at the Cock Tavern, London. Pours hazy, deep red with a fine, creamy head. Nose of funky fruit, cherry, tangy berries. Light sweet flavor, very tart, with up front funk and tang, then background rich, dark cherries. Bit of lactic tang, strong acidity. Light bodied with average carbonation. Crisp and tart to finish, some cherry pit bitterness, funky cherries, lemon acidity. Pretty good. The fruit character becomes a bit jammier as the beer warms. Nice.

Slightly above 1/3 of a pint draft @ Brewdog as part of a sampler. Very bright lovely cherry red, only some fungus looking slits for head. Nose is lightly acidic sour, almost medicinal sourness, red chewy candy, some sewage water, lacto and light gummy beers. Taste is a light cherry sourness mixed with some lemon, light acidity mixed sewage water, light lactic leading up to a bitter finish, floral, herbal, candy. Lighter carb. slightly sticky. Okay but not exactly what it should be.
