Leighton (11649) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2013
Can in NYC. Pours clear, rich gold with a huge, off-white cream head. Sugary, bredy and lightly toasted malts on the nose, with notes of fading pine. It tastes alright, medium sweet with bready malts, suggestions of caramel, a bit of dry grass and pine, mellow earth. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Moderately sweet and faintly resinous to finish, with nips of caramel, toasted bread and piney, herbal bitterness. Not bad.

bhensonb (11389) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 4, 2008
60 IBU!!!! Bottle from Vintage Cellar. Amber color with a decent white head. Aromas of lightly roasted caramel, florality and fruitiness. Near medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is roast malt with resin, floral and fruit hop. The bitter seems to come from roasted malt as much as from hop. It’s nicely bitter, and finishes arguably balanced. It’s tasty, and I wouldn’t turn down another. Fresh hoppiness with each mouthful.
