tombyars (1568) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2012
Sampled this mild at the Troon Beer Festival in September 2003. Loved the name as did the rest of the punters, so it went great guns at the festival. Cask, gravity dispense. Cracking colour, a deep ruby black with thin creamy head. Strong fruity malty aroma with thin mouthfeel. Poor lacing. Dark malt complexes evident with burnt black malt on initial taste followed by slight blackcurrant fruit and a hint of caramel. Short dusty hop prickle noted in the brief aftertaste. Sweet fruit flavours balanced by slight roasted coffee notes on the finish. Reminded me of a weak Broughton Black Douglas? Well recommended.

Leighton (17809) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2012
Cask at London Drinker 2012. Pours clear, golden-brown with a small, bubbly head. Some dirty earth and light, burnt grass in the nose. Faintly sweet flavor with burnt malts and earthy bitterness. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Semi-dry finish, light tang, faint plastic, dirt, and burnt grass. Very light cocoa. Uninspiring.

Very dark brown beer, light just passes through. Seme dry palate. Low carbonation. Roasty malt and bittering hop, not much else. A bit of an effort.

BeerViking (3915) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2011
Cask at the Magpie, pours a dark red-brown with a mid-coarse beige head and aromas of malt and coffee. Roasty and faintly bitter on the palate, with hints of chocolate and an underlying red-fruit sweetness, and the roastiness persisting into the aftertaste.
