On tap at Westow House, 06/2014. Pours a hazy gold with a white head. Sweet, candy aroma. Medium body, mild carbonation. Odd, slightly meaty taste initially. There’s lemon, a hint of orange, a light woody bitterness and a metallic tang to the finish that sticks around. Not great.

Leighton (10674) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2014
Bottle at home in London - picked up at Kris Wines. Pours mostly clear, yellow-gold with a rich, pure white foam head. The nose has pale bread, a bit of zesty lemon, some straw. Medium sweet flavor, well balanced, with moderate bitter straw, some crisp biscuits, citrusy hops, some tangerine and lemon, light rindy bitterness. Light bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Well balanced on the finish with more biscuity sweetness, light bitter straw and lemon rind, slight cereal, hay. Solid beer. Very drinkable. Nicely done.
