Leighton (11322) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2012
Cask at GBBF 2012, London. Pours clear amber with a weak, white foam head. Crisp, dry caramel nose. Light to medium sweet flavor with grapes and light toffee. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly piney to finish, faintly resinous, with light caramel and ripe citrus. Yeah, it’s alright.

GBBF. Hazy amber beer with a few tan bubbles for a head. Palate is quite and dry and a little crisp from the mild fine carbonation. Mild juicy dried fruits, whisper of red berries. Fresh hop spice. All flavours in good balance. Fresh and fruity.

Phatman (176) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 25, 2012
From Growler. Deep amber color, head dependant on pourers skill. Aroma of cherrys some malt. Flavor is a little bland to begin with but leads into a fine bitterness from the hops that is super sessionable.

Cask @ GBBF ’12. Pours deep amber with no head. The nose is sweet cherry, some toffee and toasted bread. The taste is light grassy hops, berry fruits and balancing toasty bread. Medium body. Simple, OK.

GROWLER!
Appearance - Dark orange, small sudsy head
Aroma - Ehh.. cinnamon? Herbs and grapefruit
Taste - Tart cherry, hops, light citrus

So glad my brother brought this growler from MA. As an incredibly session-able beer, sip after sip revealed tart cherries and hops all coming down to a light tangerine twang. Cheers!

Yo man, thanks Chipalsa and Jamaul for bringin’ this 64oz’er back down from Cape Cod. Aromas is honey, light bread, and caramel malt. Body is nice with a ruby red/brown color and a dark tan head. Cool. Taste is more caramel, some corn, and a lightly bitter finish. Not a bad brew at all. Sessionable as hell!

Growler. Pours a deep ruby red with a small head that dissipates quickly. There is some malt up front and a lingering bitter aftertaste that is not to my taste.
