Craft Islington. Clear gold beer, little white head. Light palate, mild carbonation. Decent but mild hops - pronounced tangerine with a tiny bit of skunk. Finishes semi dry. Simple stuff done very well. Really like the tangerine.

harrisoni (14020) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2014
On tap at The Craft Clerkenwell. Clear amber colour lasting white head. Too cold man. Oh why is keg beer in the UK so cold. Some light soap. Can’t taste much as way too cold.

Oakes (12777) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 17, 2014
Golden and actually looks a bit dull. Quite fruity and with a dash of berries. Light fruits, hint of hop spice and a light, bready pale malt base.

Leighton (11641) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2012
Cask at Craft Beer Co. - Islington, London. Pours clear gold with a fine, white cap. Melon and jammy citrus in the nose. Light sweet flavor with sweet fruits and light sticky grass. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Lightly dry on the finish with lime, citrus and straw. Nice, although the condition is sub-par. I’m sure this could be better.

Cask conditioned at The Dornoch Castle Hotel, Sutherland, Scotland. Gold with white head. Nicely hopped beer, quite bitter with hints of grass and grapefruit. Leafy and dry, the malts are light and biscuity. I enjoyed this.
