Leighton (11874) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2012
Cask at Hamilton Hall, JDW, London. Pours clear, bright gold with a moderate, creamy-foamy white head. Nose is all toasted biscuits and light hay. Medium sweet flavor with rich, lightly toasted bread, biscuits, some grains like rye, mild orange and other citris tang, some faintly toasted sugar. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Fairly sweet on the finish with some sticky sugars, dark grassy bitterness, mild dry biscuits, ripe citrus. It’s an alright strong golden ale.

Cask handpull at County Hotel Ashford . Clear mid brown coloured beer with lasting cream head. Tasty enough full favoured and full bodied beer. Some fruits but a touch of puke on the malty flavour. Good condition just not as good as the Westerham Uppin Smoke.
