One of my favourite session ales. Had 3 pints at the Star pub in Willerby on cask. Lovely straw coloured golden ale with a long lasting head very easy to drink & very enjoyable

Leighton (23092) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2012
Cask at The Cleveland Arms, London. Pours clear, bright gold with a fine, foamy white head. Lovely aroma with vibrant citrus right off the bat. Then some mild straw. Light to medium sweet with a crisp, biscuity character that reminds me of lager. There is light straw and grass bitterness, also-lager like here. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly sweet to finish, more crispy biscuits, some light hay and white sugar. Simple and fantastic. Superb condition. The Cleveland Arms remains, for me, the best pub in London as far as conditioning goes.
