Leighton (10419) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2013
Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell in London. Many thanks to Sr. Bois. Pours lightly hazy, yellow-gold with a creamy, white head. Funky sweat in the nose, light vinegar and white grape. Light sweet flavor with rindy bitterness, sturdy funk, yeast and slick, oily fruits. Light bodied with average, creamy carbonation. Funky finish with bitter lemon rind and melon. So so - but a big step up from the keg counterpart.

Bottle share thanks to Mr Bois. Hazed yellow pour with a small white head. Aroma is funk, armpit, light horsey notes. Flavour is light apple, apple skin, mellow tartness. Mellow medium carb and medium body. Light tanin in the finish. This is a completely different beer than on keg. I cannot believe this is marketted as the same beer!

Scopey (6140) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2013
Bottle, big thanks to Colin - what a guy... It pours hazy pale gold with a medium white head. The nose is barnyard, light sulphur, arm-pit, sherbet, coconut, lightly acidic and vanilla. The taste is dough, peach, nectarine, sherbet, tangy,earthy, light vinegar and decent bitterness with a dry finish. Medium body, fine carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Tastes nothing like the draft version, which is a very good thing! Easy drinking. An alright sour.
