Hazy gold beer with a good white head. Palate is airy and crisp. Mild minerals. Smooth and semi sweet airy malt. Nice lemon - lime hops with a touch of pine. Unfortunately skewed by the old Mallinsons soap. Light finish with more sweet pine. Could have been very good indeed without the soap.

Leighton (20104) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2017
Keg at the Three Johns - London. Pours totally clear gold with a thick, frothy white head. Strong grassy and floral hops in the nose, some citrus zest. Light sweet flavour with aggressive grassy bitterness, lemon rind, dry ple mats, hay, some grain husk. Light bodied with average carbonation. A little harsh on the finish, more strong grass, citrus rind, pale crackers. Like so many Mallinsons beers, the bitterness is just a bit of out of balance.

Cask conditioned at York Beer Festival 13. Gold with white head. This was quite a lively beer, still in great condition on the third day of the festival. Good, hoppy grapefruit notes along with lemon peel and bitterness. Lengthy on the palate. Very good.

Scopey (13722) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2017
Keg at Three Johns. It pours golden with a small, but sturdy white head. The aroma is sweet, juicy, grapefruit, lemon rind, a bit peachy, apricot, floral, toasty grain, cracker, straw. The taste is crisp, dry, raw bitterness, straw, floral, grassy, grapefruit, apricot, persimmon, some astringency with a dry, zesty finale. Finish is raw and dry. Light - medium body and fine carbonation. Pretty punchy, maybe a bit raw but decent.
