JohnRMurdoch (3281) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - SEP 11, 2011
Cask @ The Horseshoe Bar. Spicy wheat aroma. Hazy golden Amber colour, good head. Bitter spicy citrus fruit flavour. Bitter aftertaste. Good stuff but not an IPA. More a blonde ale.

AshtonMcCobb (2542) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 6, 2011
Cask at The Haymarket Bar, Edinburgh. Pours golden and slightly hazy with a decent white head. The nose has some caramel and grapes. The taste has a bit more caramel and grapes with a burnt/grapefruit finish. The palate isnít great - medium bodied and textured but just doesnít clean on the end. Overall, unfortunately another wishy-washy British ale which doesnít drink that well.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 4, 2011
Cask at The Haymarket. Pours a golden colour with a fair white head. Aroma of caramel, grapefruit and pineapple. Similar flavours with barley and a nice dry finish. Mild carbonation. Not bad.

Leighton (10969) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2011
Cask at The White Horse, Nicholsonís, London. Pours clear, orange-gold with a bubbly, white head. Soapy and floral hop nose with hints of citrus. Decent flavor, some almost tangy citrus, resinous grass, mild caramel and toasted sugar. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet, decently balanced finish, some lingering citrus rind. Nice beer.
