Leighton (11900) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2014
Cask at the Willow Walk, JDW - London. Pours clear yellow with a bubbly white head. The aroma holds a bit of dry and doighy malts, faint crunchy cereal grains, lemon rind. Medium sweet flavor with sugary pale malts, white bread, grain husk bitterness, rotten lemon. Medium bodied with fine carbonation; decent condition. Sweet, sugary finish with more pale bread, some bitter hay, melon, more rindy lemon. So so.

harrisoni (14141) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2014
Cask handpull at Spoons Victoria Station. Clear pale gold lasting white head. Touch of ascetic hop on the aroma and then into the beer but it never goes too far. Right on the edge of being too bleachy. Finish hop is pretty aggressive but interesting.
