HogTownHarry (7065) - Toronto (Harbourfront), CANADA - AUG 24, 2012
Handpull at The Wheatsheaf (Southwark). Hazy gold with a smallish off-white head. Simple aroma is floral/herbal with lemon zest and coriander, just a hint of candy in there somewhere. Taste follows, more citrus (grapefruit pith) and still not at all sweet - very nicely balanced, really. Average body, a bit astringent, spicy, low-level carbonation, and a medium-short dry spicy finish. Quite quenching - sneaky bit of acidic hop bitterness hovering around the perimeter too.

3.2
leaparsons (10765) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2012
Cask, The Salmon, Leicester. Hazy gold with a white foam. Aromas are honey and Lon with plenty of pepper. Musty with hints of cheese. Low biscuit malts. Flavours are sweet and sour lemon with dry biscuit and a fair amount of yeast. Decent barnyard notes with lager malts. A decent stab at the style.
