Theydon_Bois (14283) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2015
Cask at the OCH, 08/10/15. Clear golden copper with a decent off white cap. Nose is earthy hop, straw, bitter orange, caramel. Taste comprises light pine, faint spice, mineral rinse, tangerine, orange pith, straw. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, semi drying close with hop bitterness present. Decent sessioner. Too hoppy for a bitter IMHO.

Scopey (9998) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2015
Cask at The Old Coffee House. It pours clear amber with a decent off-white head. The nose is wood, quite earthy, toasted nuts, brown bread, rivita, cereal stewed orange and petrol (the last one may have been case by the open door and traffic outside). The taste is punchy bitterness upfront, wood, leather, nut , pine, varnish, light caramel backbone, resin, pepper, light chewy malt and a touch of astringency with a lingering bitter-dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Not sure if I have quite had a bitter this bitter before. Perhaps a touch over-the-top, but good nonetheless.

Cask (Cask P&K, RBESG Sunday)
Fruity hop aroma - simcoe-like. Full taste - malts, aromatic fruity hops, and nice bittering hops too. What more could you ask for in a 4% bitter?

Leighton (15259) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2011
Cask at William IV during Brodies Birthday Bash 2011. Pours clear gold with a foamy, white head. Light citrus nose, faint woody hops. Beautiful flavor, very clean, nice balance, some citrusy bitterness, sun-kissed grains and barley. Light bodied with fine carbonation and great condition. Sweet and somewhat sticky finish, slight raw hops, more citrus, light resins. A pretty excellent beer.
