Leighton (17992) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2015
Keg at Mother Kelly’s during the London Bimble. Cheers, all! Pours clear, deep amber-gold with a thick, creamy off-white head. Great balance in this one. Moderate piney hops are the story, with ripe berries and lightly toasted malts providing some layers. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Resinous on the finish, with some toasted grain, more berries, ripe citrus, oily pine. Quite solid.
