berkshirejohn (6072) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2013
Cask at The Botanist, Kew. Amber with a thin white head; honey aroma; some fresh leafy hops give an immediate nettley bitterness, but it’s very sweet, so not to my taste.

Theydon_Bois (17229) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2013
Cask at theBotanist, Kew Green - 28/02/13. Lightly hazed golden amber with a decent sized white cap that retains well. Nose is floral hops, summer fruits, grass, light chlorene notes. Taste comprises pale malts, light caramel, citrus, summer fruits, background hops. Medium bodied with fine carbonation, light hop bitterness in the finish. An adequate golden/blonde, looks and feels very good - taste and nose a little more run of the mill.

Rune (11355) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 1, 2012
Cask, full pint, shared with Finn and Harrisoni at Pakenham Arms. Hazy golden body, filmy layer at the surface. Fresh fruity nose. Ditto taste profile where peaches and floral hops can be detected. Smooth bittersweet ending. Quite nice (London, 01.11.2012).

Leighton (18713) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2012
Cask at the Pakenham Arms, London. Pours clearish gold with a fine, white foam head. Toasty pale malt aroma, some hay. Light sweet flavor with some white grapes, a bit of wet wood tang, slight astringency, a touch musty. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Moderately sweet finish with berries, grains, light hay bitterness, wet wood - yeah, a bit more tang. Perhaps not in optimal condition. As it is, just OK.
