Leighton (18222) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2016
Bottle shared with the missus at Bukowski @ Boxpark - Shoreditch, London. Pours clear, red-brown with a small, off-white foam topping. Toasty toffee in the nose, some leafy hops. Medium sweet flavour with more toffee and toasted malts, dried leaves, faint dark fruits, leather. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly sweet on the finish, with lots of leaves, moderate bitterness, moss, leathery fruits, mellow toffee sugars. Not bad overall.

harrisoni (17164) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2005
Cask at Dover Beer Festival. I am a self confessed fan of this brewery and this beer bears all the hallmarks of why I like it. Really interesting malts and a good agressive hop flavour. Sweetish malt with good fruit leads to a big satisfying finish. As you can tell I am a big fan
