Leighton (12200) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2014
Draft at the Great British Beer Festival 2014, Day 1 - London. Pours clear, pale yellow with a bubbly white head. Nice beer, with biscuity pale malts, lemony hops. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Moderately sweet on the finish with sugary pale bread, a bit of bitter hay. Very simple but not offensive.

Theydon_Bois (10353) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2014
Cask at GBBF ’14, day 1, 12/08/14. Pale golden with moderate off white spotting. Nose is yeasty, straw, bread pangs, lemon rind. Taste comprises much the same. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, semi drying close with a bitter linger. So so, doesn’t really do enough to justify its 5%!

GBBF Day 1. Cask. Clear pale gold beer, few white bubbles for a head. Palate is light and crispy. Light pale malts. Sweetish floralness and mild tangerine citrus. Whisper of lemon. Light dry finish. Not too bad.
