We started in 1985 with a soup pot, a dream, and quite honestly a prayer. Thank God we made it! Please enjoy this special ale made with Michigan-grown barley malt and celebrate with us.

Hazy amber beer, tidy off white head. Fresh malt base with a little dried fruit. Somewhat German like! Fresh and fairly neutral palate. A little generic fruit with some aniseed. The fruit tastes a little crystallised. Not bad at all. Really reminds me of a fresh German Beer but turned up to 11.

Leighton (18222) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2016
Bottle shared at Kenny’s 20k tasting in London. Big thanks to the man of the hour for this beer! Pours clear gold with a frothy, white head. The nose is a little papery, with note of bread and citrus. Moderately sweet, somewhat boozy, with touches of lime peel, white bread. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Hot finish, with alcohol-soaked citrus fruits, orange, simple pale bread. Just OK overall.
