Leighton (13203) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2013
Bottle at the ChrisO Snow Tasting, London - thanks to Phil and Anna for this beer. Pours clear amber with a fine, white foam head. Dry, bready malt nose. Light sweetness to the flavour, some berries, more bread. Light bodied with average carbonation. Some dry and toasty malts in the finish. Simple, easy drinking stuff.

Oakes (13155) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 16, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2012 Draught, 2012. Murky amber colour. Sweet with a figgy character. Too sweet and the phenols are too strong. Still not into this one.

Bottle, Brewery Creek, 2008
Gold-tinged amber-brown colour. It’s a really nice colour, actually. Weak head. Toasty, earthy nose with some brown sugar and tobaccoey hop notes. Heavily toasty palate with caramel & cheesy oxidized hop accents. Sweetish finish. Rather boring.

Theydon_Bois (11449) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2012
