Leighton (17240) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2011
Cask at the Crosse Key, JDW. Pours a clear, deep ruby with a bubbly, off-white head. Caramel, toffe and ripe fruits like grapes on the nose. Flavor is sweet and quite fruity, with some wood, sugar syrup, alcohol and herbal hops. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Light dryness in the finish with some pleasantly surprising roastiness, more almost ripe fruits, not too sweet. An interesting, slightly incongruous beer.

Bullit (4348) - Burgos, SPAIN - DEC 20, 2010

Oakes (14671) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 1, 2010
@ Halfway House. Dull dark amber. The aroma is actually kind of faint. Toasty, with hints of bread. There is some malty nuance, but the beer overall might be too sweet and insufficiently nuanced.

Beershine (5219) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 24, 2010
Cask @ Halfway House. Dark amber/auburn. Aroma of toasted baguette. Very nice flavors are rich, sweet brown sugar and dark bran muffins. Nice.

patrick767 (3918) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 4, 2010
cask at Guildford Arms about a month ago - Pours slightly hazy amber and smells of caramel malt with a little hops. The flavor is sweet caramel malt with mild bitterness. It’s medium bodied and overall is a decent ale.
