jjsint (2334) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2016
Cask handpull at the Tap, Derby. Amber/red with a small, thin, off-white head resting on top. Gentle aroma: a touch of berry with fusty malt. Sweet malty taste with some grainy savoury notes. Medium to long finish, with Horlicks and marzipan in the aftertaste. An odd little beer, certainly drinkable but far from perfect.

A pale Amber ale with a caramel aroma, some grassiness, caramel malty flavour, slightly bitter finish. Reasonably pleasant, but middle of the road and nothing special.

Leighton (18527) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2015
Bottle at home in London - sourced from Ales by Males. Pours totally clear copper with a foamy, mostly white head. The nose is simple berry fruits, light bread, leaves, toasted grain. Light-medium sweet flavor with pleasant, rounded berry fruit sugars, low bitterness, touches of leaves, faint grass, apple, very mild toffee accents, bready malts. Light bodied with average carbonation. Moderately sweet on the finish with further bready malt character, berries, apple, slight grain and leaf. Tasty, easygoing bitter.

Leicht trübes orangegoldenes Bier mit einer fingerbreiten leicht beigen Schaumkrone. Geruch nach Obst, leicht hopfig, wenig Zitrone. Geschmack fruchtig, malzig, etwas Karamell, Citrus, süffig, ok!

Bottle @ home. Clear amber color, medium sized beige head that lasts for a decent while. Smell and taste malts, some caramel, biscuit, decently bitter. Lingering bitterness in the finish. Medium body and carbonation. Quite enjoyable.
