Leighton (9830) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2013
Gravity cask at the Wandsworth Common Halloween Beer Festival - Le Gothique, London. Pours clear auburn with a frothy white head. The aroma holds light grainy bread and dried fruits. The flavor is medium sweet with light berries and other semi-ripe fruits, and bready malts. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Fairly sweet to finish with further dry fruits, bread and leafy bitterness. Solid bitter.

Cask at the Bell, Waltham St Lawrence. Deep golden amber with a thin,scummy looking, cream head; floral aroma; soft and biscuity in the mouth with a gentle floral bitterness. Rather understated but very drinkable.

BlackHaddock (3183) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2012
500ml brown bottle, best before end of Sept 2012, poured into my Abbot Ale glass tankard in March 2012. Looks like a proper ale: true copper/amber hue to it, clear and clean. An off-white blanket of rocky foam sat on top, pretty as a picture. The smell and taste are of a well blended malty beer that has a fine hop balance which adds just enough bitterness to take away any hints of over sweetness. Pale, Crystal and Chocolate malts along with torrified wheat are used in the kettle, the hops being both Amarillo and Goldings. Very ’moreish’ in its flavours, had trouble putting the beer down to write this (a live review). I love trying beers from all over the world, but ales like this remind me what fantastic brews we have in the UK as well.

DruncanVeasey (6935) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2011
Bottle from Booth’s, Ilkley. Clear ruby with copper edges and a slim beige collar. Sensible English aroma; aniseed-sprinkled toffee, hay, coal, vaguely English herbal hop. Toffee and digestive maltiness, light minerals, hay flecked with seawater. A bit drab, especially in the context of Ulverston’s paler efforts.

johndoughty (3716) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2010
Bottle. Golden with well balanced flavours.Some hops and a lot of body for its strength. Lingering bitterness. A classy label makes it stand out in a crowded market place. Worth checking out.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2008
A Sim rate (cask at the Bricklayer’s Arms Putney): Hoppy, toffee and caramel aroma. Sweet, sugary & floral. Citric: grapefruit & lime. Murky copper/brown colour with a nice head. Tobacco flavour, which is why I unfortunately marked it down to a ’6’. Bitter tang with lemon and grapefruit.
