Leighton (10967) - 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 (13704) - 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
