Leighton (22027) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2011
Cask at the Euston Tap. Clear gold with a foamy head. Light toast malt aroma. Pretty sweet, hints of wood, a little fruit, mild toast. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Woody finish, lightly dry, some earth. Good beer.

DruncanVeasey (8260) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2011
Cask handpull at The Talbot Taphouse (the Amber tap), Ripley, Derbyshire, 30/04/11. Brassy amber with good lacing condition and some aroma to it- at last a venue north of Nuneaton not sparklering their beer into nothingness..Thistle and orange peel on the nose. Gentle wash of tangy orange, floury vanilla, Rich Tea linger. Clean and balanced, some digestives dunked in seawater. Good.

Fin (10820) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2010
Cask at the pub of the same name i.e The Barnes Wallis, Ripley, Derbyshire, 08-07-10 Really soapy hops in the mouth, bit too soapy for me. The bitterness shows better balance than the Dambusters IPA but still lacks something compared to that beer, a bit fruity, its ok stuff, pours gold with white rim. A5 A4 T5 P3 Ov10 2.7
