Leighton (10512) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2014
Cask at the Euston Tap - London. Pours clear yellow with a foamy, white head. The nose holds lemon rind, hay and slight tropical fruits. Light sweet flavor with assertive, grassy bitterness, strong lemon rind, dirty hay. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Grassy bitter finish with low sweetness, further lemon rind. The bitterness is a touch abrasive.

Svesse (6044) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2013
(Cask at Craft Beer Co Islington, 23 Nov 2013) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of grass, citrus and biscuity malt. Fruity, malty taste with citrus, biscuits and a certain grassy, floral bitterness in the finish. Light body, with balanced sweetness. On the thin side and not very complex, but with a fresh and generous hop presence. Quite nice.

Scopey (6239) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2013
Cask at the Old Fountain. it pours clear golden with a small white head. The nose is hay, earthy, grainy, toast and orange marmalade. The taste is smooth, damn bitter, earthy, straw, hay, toasted grass and light soap with a dry, bitter finish. Light-medium body and soft carbonation. Light, good bitterness and good drinkablity. Another good golden from Mallinson’s.

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2013
500ml. Misted orange-gold heaped with rocky foam. Brittle green citrusy aroma with a splash of G+T; nettles and flowers; curry leaf, tropical fruit, mint leaf. Zesty, bitter GA bursting with sap, chlorophyll, pollen and grapefruit. Cracking fresh hop character backed with deep oily, nutty malt. Seriously stewed hop tea notes. No surprises; Mallinsons deliver another beautifully fragrant punch in the face. One of the finest, most consistent, most hop-centric brewers in the UK no question.
