Craft Clerkenwell. Cask. Bright clear paleish gold beer. Residual white head. Palate is light and airy with modest carbonation. Fairly dry pale malt, light but grainy. Whisper of bubblegum ester, banana too. Whisper of hops, insipid citrus and super light floralness. Finishes light and dry. A dull disappointment from this brewer.

Leighton (18711) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2011
Cask at the Euston Tap. Clear gold pour with a creamy, white head. Orange and tangerine on the nose with some bubblegum and hay. Has a nice, balanced flavor, light to medium sweet with mild, tangy citrus, straw, faint dough and spices. Light to medium in body with perfect, fine carbonation. Sweet, lightly dry finish with subtle meringue and tangerine. Very good stuff.

harrisoni (17352) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2005
Cask at County Hotel (JDW) Ashford. Amber coloured beer. Typical Roosters nose of rich malt with promise of berry fruit. Good full mouth feel ending in acids and drying hops, but good rich mouthful of hay, berry fruits leading to acidity. Some yeast and slighlty creamy. A typically good rich Roosters beer. I thought the second pint in particular was stunning

Theydon_Bois (17229) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2012
Cask at the Seven Stars, Rugby - 12/12/12. Clear pale golden wih a good white head. Nose comprises pale malt, grain, barley, light citrus. Taste follows with a touch of caramel, and little sweet sugar noticeable. Medium bodied, smooth on the palate, light bitterness in the finish. Ok but a little on the bland side.

Soft palate. Simple light grainy aroma, some earthy hoppy aspects. Taste follows that. Very simple bitter, but nice bitterness, earthy and twiggy.
