Leighton (18221) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2012
Cask at The Brownswood, London. Pours clear yellow with a fine, white froth head. Grainy malt nose, wet leaves. Light sweet flavor, toasted grains, dirt, leafy bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Moderately sweet finish, toast, more dirt and leaves, grainy malts. Wholly uninspiring.

harrisoni (17149) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2006
Cask handpull at Head of Steam, Euston. It has been ages since I had this. Golden, thin white head. Slightly nettley farm yardy aroma which to be honest always puts me off. OK in mouth with some grapes, bit wet, not enough body for me. Then dry, dusty hop finish with tingling citrus acids. OK, but not a big fan

Oakes (15490) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 21, 2002
Sampled cask-conditioned at the Cayo Arms, Cardiff...Light amber; earthy, minerally aroma, light caramel, some tin character. Moves into chalkiness on the palate, and a slightly earthy hop finish.
