The (not so) shit beer tasting at Leightons stratospheric flat. Thanks Leighton. Hazy amber beer, tidy pale cream colored head. Palate is airy and dry. Light airy malt cream. Dried fruits, lightly tangy. Very light spice in the semi dry finish. Not bad.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can from Malt & Vine - but the can ABV is 8.5%. Pours dark ruddy copper with a creamy light tan head. Aromas of resin and darkish fruit. Near full bodied with creamy carb. Flavor is pine resin with some accompanying darkish fruit character (can states brewed with dates!). A good beer which could stand imperialization.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. can, pours a dark amber brown with a small beige head. Aroma of hops upfront, some bready malts, hints of caramel and dark fruits, and a bit of grapefruit. Flavour is a mellow blend of sweet caramel malts, citrus hops and grapefruit, with some subtle spicy notes thrown in there - the flavour dies on the palate very quickly leaving little aftertaste. Nice subtle flavours, but for 8.5%, this lacks a deep flavour profile. Mildly enjoyable.
