HogTownHarry (6376) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2012
Handpull at The Botanist. Clear deep ruby, average lasting creamy/foamy tan head. Simple slightly sweet nutty/floral aroma, no cola, a little cocoa. Taste follows, just a little bit of cola syrup, still peetry much no alcohol. Light body and carbonation, finishes quickly - a bit of scorched malt in the aftertaste.

Leighton (18711) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2012
Cask at the brewpub, London. Pours clear, red-brown with a fine, white foam head. Very nice, rich toasty dark grain bread nose. Light sweet flavor with some toast, mild cocoa and dark bread. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Nice condition. Lightly sweet to finish with more of the same characteristics: dark bread, cocoa, light coffee. Very solid brown ale. Exceptionally well balanced. This style doesnít get much love, and fair enough as most breweries donít give brown ales any respect. This beer, on the other hand, certainly reflects some care and attention. Good work.

Beer5000 (5949) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 13, 2012
On cask @ the brewpub. Nice looking, very dark amber body with a moderate sized beige head. Aroma has roasted malt, chocolate and dark berries. Nice roasted malt flavor with dry fruit and bitter chocolate and coffee. Moderate bitterness. Fine body and a pleasant aftertaste. Nice and tasty ale that goes well together with the tapas plate.

[Cask at Reading BF] Gleamingly clear deep copper, aroma of tropical fruits. Pineapple dominates the flavour, with hints of caramel and roastiness behind. But yeah, really, really pineappley. Weird. But I like it. c7
