maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2013
Cask conditioned handpump Craft Beer Co N1 London 04/03/13. An amber coloured beer with an off-white head and lacing. Not overly sweet but the honey is there and hiney is not my thing. Grainy malts. A decent enough base beer but it’s not got a lot going on.

Leighton (11641) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2013
Cask at CBC Islington, London. Pours clear, golden-browm with a fine, foamy head. Light caramel, brown bread, toasty leaves in the nose. Light to medium sweet flavor, some ripe fruits, bread, low bitterness. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Swet finish, very light leaves, toffee, rioe berries. Tasty, simple.

Cask at the Craft Clerkenwell. Clear amber beer, residual white head. Palate is light and with mild crispness. Mild generic fruits with tangy orange - tangerine behind. Mild bitterness. A little sweetish malt. Hmmm on paper this looks like a good idea but then end result is a but wishy washy.

jackl (4797) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Cask @ CPK. The pour’s a honey amber color with a small white head. The aroma’s bright honey breakfast cereal, toasted oat bread. Caramel, a bit of glazed doughnut sweetness. The taste is moderately grainy. More oat bread and very sweet honey. A bit of cookie dough. Shaggy tobacco leaf bitterness on the finish. The body’s a bit watery, slick. Soft carbonation. Overall, a bit of a letdown. This is one of Thornbridge’s weakest offerings. Just a bunch of sweet honey flavors and little else.

On cask at Craft Beer Co. Appearance: Ruby red/brown with a medium white head. Aroma: Grassy, quite a good amount of malt with a toasty/roasty aroma. Flavour: Nutty, quite bitter with a good amount of hops, spicy with lots of toastiness, great nutty bitter finish. Quite nice.
