Leighton (11122) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2011
Cask at William IV during Brodies Birthday Bash 2011. Pours clear gold with a foamy, white head. Light citrus nose, faint woody hops. Beautiful flavor, very clean, nice balance, some citrusy bitterness, sun-kissed grains and barley. Light bodied with fine carbonation and great condition. Sweet and somewhat sticky finish, slight raw hops, more citrus, light resins. A pretty excellent beer.
