Leighton (13514) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2015
Cask at the Hanilton Hall, JDW - London. Pours clear gold with a lasting, creamy white head. The nose holds bready male, some ripening citrus fruits, flourishes of berries. Light-medium sweet flavor with relaxed leafy bitterness some dried grains, leathery berries. Light bodied with fine carbonation; good condition. Nicely balanced finish with further bready malt sugars, lightly bitter leaves, mellow fruits. An altogether acceptable bitter.

The_Osprey (2912) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2015
Cask at Railway, Putney. Dark amber, still, pretty clear, small foamy white head, full lacing. Aroma is toned down, musty cupboard. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is soft bready malt, twiggy, woody liquorice stick (the twiggy ones you get from health shops), gluey, bitterness builds over time, ashy aftertaste. A decent bitter.
