HogTownHarry (6150) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2014
September 5, 2014 at The Southampton Arms (visit #1) - handpull. Sorry - minimal notes on this one, but ... it’s pretty recent and what I remember is: fairly pale and clear, not much head - aroma and taste quite mild - grassy, vaguely fruity, light of body, a little still, and no real linger to it. Nothing wrong with it, but fairly bland.

Theydon_Bois (10647) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2014
Cask at the Cock during RBESG ’14, day 3, 09/08/14. Clear golden blonde with moderate off white spotting. Nose is lemon rind, light hop presence, faint pine, pith citrics, hint of soap at the end. Taste comprises lemon rind, faint melon, bread dough, again a hint of soap, citric tinged straw. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with light hop bitterness. The light soap effect lets this one down for me.
