Overall mediocre, uninspired beer. Not the best I’ve had from Leatherbritcher, but not at all bad, not worth hunting out.

Cask. Aroma modestly malty and nutty. Pours amber gold with white lace top. Taste is well balanced with hops ultimately winning but it’s a close call. Not sure why I don’t like this more. It could be weight of expectation. Or the prospect of getting up at 4am. I may re-rate another day.

Bottle from co-op, burton. Dark amber beer with medium head. Aroma of toffee and malts. Taste is malts, toffee and dry hops. Ok beer.

tommann (3937) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2011
500ml bottle at 5.2%. Pours a slightly hazy dark orange with no head. Aroma is nutmeg and tangy, fruity, floral notes. Taste is pretty watery. Some fruity malt on the finish. Lifeless.

oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2010
Bottled. Golden colour, small off-white head. Fruity and floral hops along with some nectary notes. Mild herbal notes as well. Flavour is fruity and floral hops along with some caramel and mild nutmeg. Quite interesting.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 22, 2009
Coppery colored with little yellow head. Caramelly aroma with some flowery hops, sweetness and lemon also come up. Thin to medium bodied. Flavor is not so sweet with caramel and lemon in start, aftertaste lasts with hops and chocolate.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2011 1) BC from Leicester Asda. Lively, tall- headed honey pour misting finely with bits. Bright sherbety aroma with apple strudel, custard, nail polish remover, caramel and pear over a herbal hop background. Lemon and thyme. Quite a fine smelling ale. Flavour mellower autumn fruits, honey, spicy hop,caramel, green apple and a fair bit of gentle, oaky alcohol. Impressive lacing, soft carbonation. Quite a grower. 2) Bottle Octo got me from Atherstone Co-op. Enticing, autumn-fruity aroma...something like plum, strawberry.. pineapple jelly sprinkled with digestives. Clean rounded taste with more plum and wholemeal biscuit. Earthy yeast and hazelnut hints. Fine, well carbonated but not fizzy condition. Leatherbritches emerging as one of those rare English breweries that can transfer the personality of their cask beers into the bottle. 737314.

leaparsons (10756) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2008
Bottle. Amber gold with a small head. Aromas are floral with grapefruit. Some sweet biscuit malts. Peppery and hoppy. Flavours are sweet chewy malts with citrus. Grapefruit bitterness on the finish. A good refreshing bitter.
