5th August 2010. GBBF.
Clear amber beer. Light dry palate. Very low carbonation. Well balanced light toffee malt and mild hops. Totally flat though and that doesn’t help.

Leighton (18527) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2011
Bottle at home in London. Pours a crystal clear copper with a small, off-white head. Doughy malts on the nose, hints of ripe and rotten citrus, a little fruity booze. Flavor is alright, touches of toast and caramel, light sweetness, some leafy bitterness. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Mild sugary finish, leafy and herbal hops, very light toast. Not offensive.

harrisoni (17284) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2006
Cask gravity at Rare Breeds BF 06. Hazy copper, with lasting beige head. Resiny hop aroma, bit of grapefruit. Smooth in mouth, juicy citrus finish. Yes, could do with another half a day settling, but still a pretty good bitter.
