harrisoni (14104) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2012
Cask conditioned at Reading BF 2012. Orange gold slight haze lasting off white head. Earthy beer. Good condition. Hoppy enough to be interesting and make you want to drink again. Does what a session beer should. Earthy yes but great nick and hoppy dryness on finish to make it good.

Leighton (11824) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2012
Bottle at home in London. Pours clear, straight gold with a creamy, white head. Some doughy toast in the nose with zesty, dry orange. Nice, lightly sweet flavor with a mild toasty doughiness, some dirt, pine, dry grapefruit and orange. Light bodied with average to lively carbonation. Lightly dry finish with grassy bitterness, very faint plastic, pine, dirty hay, some dry citrus. Decent bitter, though the character is pretty light. Pretty drinkable.

shoulderbroken (2179) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 24, 2011
Cask at the brewery open day. Golden coloured, quite translucent with no head and no carbonation. No real strong aroma but might be to do with the plastic cup. Quite soft in the mouth with a little bit of sweetness. Nice basic taste and very drinkable.

[500ml bottle, London Fields Brewery] Hazy brown pour, good white head. Some malt on the nose, slightly nutty and yeasty edge. Bitter on the palate, sweet malt and yeast before a bitter aftertaste. Session ale indeed! [03122011]

Thanks Rich for sharing this bottle. Pours a golden brown colour with a thin beige head. Aroma of yeast, caramel and a little apple. Similar flavours with a nice nutty finish. Moderate carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel.
