Leighton (22054) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2017
Bottle at home in London - sourced from Ocado. Pours clear gold with a frothy, white head. The aroma has some biscuity pale malts, grains, vague citrus accents. Light sweet flavour with more crunchy pale grains, a little hay, dough. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Decent balance in the finish, some simple white bread, minimal hops, crackery grains. So so.

Drank while on a recent business trip to England -- on cask, decent English ale. Simple gold ale. Good, but not great.

Sjohnh (1010) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2014 Didn’t like this. Golden yellow colour a la Boddingtons. Watery mouthfeel, unpleasant tartness in the taste.

Cask handpump at The Bell Inn, Purton, nr Cricklade, Wiltshire. Friday 4th July 2014 Pours mid gold hazy, touch of burton snatch on nose. It’s as I expected, served suprisingly quite cold, but not suffering for it. Fruity with a light bitterness throughout its tangy, fine. A6 A4 T7 P3 Ov13 3.3

Bottle. My first for a long time from this brewery. Golden and clear. Slightly sweet with a small head. Pleasant but nothing really distinctive about it. Pretty average.

Smootg golden pour. Creamy white heas and clinging lace. Bready flavour. Smooth texture. Little thin overall but an easy session ale.
