Leighton (11649) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2014
Cask at the Earl of Essex - London. Pours clear, red-gold with a slight, creamy topping. The nose has some old berries and brown bread. Light-medium sweet flavor with some soggy grains and leaves, citrus peel, bread, vague pine. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation; the condition could be better. There’s a modest mineral edge in the finish, along with more ripe berries and grainy brown bread. Fair.

Cask handpull, Prince of Wales, on a bit of a miniature crawl of Hinckley, 11/01/14. Thick-collared red bronze. Perfumed peach, flowers, tangerine nose. Honey, mandarin and biscuit base with a generous waft of green stewed and soft tropical hop. Really good; approaching US IPA good actually. On handpull in Hinckley. Unbelievable.

harrisoni (14020) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2013
Cask gravity at Firkin Ale House Folkestone. Clear amber colour lasting off white head. Hoppy lovepy malty. Had a couple of not good beers before this so anything half decent was going to be a delight. It’s good. Good hop.

Cask, gravity dispense at Beer Rebellion. It pour deep amber with a small white head. The nose is wood, leathery, varnish, touch of sweetness and dried fruit. The taste is wood, leather, resinous, varnish, touch of spice, light caramel and decent bitterness with a dry, woody finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Pretty tasty and well-balanced.
