Pour is copper brown, aroma and flavor are both on the sweet side with notes of earth, grain, and slight hops. Sessionable, but boring.

On tap at Seven Bridges for RBWG bus tour. Pours a clear brown with thin beige head and little to no lacing. Aroma of caramel, toasted malts, and slight nutmeg spice. Taste follows, slightly dry. Nothing special, but better than Newcastle.

Leighton (17469) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2013
Tap at Seven Bridges during RBWG 2013. Pours. Lear brown with a fine, creamy head. Pretty simple stuff, but a bit sweeter than most brown ales, which I actually like. Light dirt bitterness. Light bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish, toasty bread. Fine.

Nice brown but a standard brown. Chocolate and toffee. Nothing ground breaking but still well done ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
