Leighton (13942) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2011
Cask at the White Hart, Nicholsons. Clearish ruby pour with a medium, off-white head. Toasty malts on the nose, some hints of citrus hops. Very balanced, drinkable flavor. Lightly sweet, with a bit of bready malts, earthy and citrusy bitterness, just faint roast. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. The roast is mild in the finish but it lingers. There’s a bit more grassy, rindy hops. Very solid.

Hand pulled cask at the C&K, Pimlico. Russet brown with a healthy beige head. Easy drinking, mildly hopped brown ale. Not challenging by any stretch of the imagination but so competently brewed.

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2010 6th June 2010. On tap at Brasserie 4:20.
Last beer of the RBESG 10 trip - how ironic it ended up being an English Bitter. Certainly did not make me feel homesick! Cloudy brown beer, little tan head. Light and very dry palate. Caramel malt with a little hop bitterness but the way over dry palate really detracts. I’m heartily sick of over dry English beers - just stop it! I drink beer for thirst and pleasure not to mimic having a mouthful of sand! Original rating 2.2

2nd August 2010. Thornbridge event at the Cask & Kitchen.
Clear brown beer with a little cream head. Light semi dry palate. Tea like malt with a little citrus. Whisper of sulphur. Malt turns a little creamy. Finishes fruity. Well balanced and decent. A much better experience than my first tasting of this!
