Leighton (13826) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2013
Keg at the Tap East Second Anniversary Party - Stratford, London. Thanks to Kenneth for sharing. Pours clear, bright gold with a creamy white head. Nose is rife with pale bread, yeast, sugar, esters. Medium to big sweet flavor with notes of bubblegum, honey, sugary bread and dry lemon. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish with flowers, honeysuckle and white bread. Nice offering. Decent.

Tap East Birthday Bash. Keg. Light haze on this gold beer, no real head. Sweet malt with a little lactose and cream. Light sweet dried fruits. Definite Parma Violets which blend well with the smooth orange - tangerine hops. Whisper of spice. Light white flowers and a touch of sherbet candy. A touch of banane and bubblegum esters before the smooth finish. Complex, sweet and tasty.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5359) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 2, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2013 Sampled on draft at the Headkeeper this beer poured a medium toffee color with a small foamy orange-white head that left decent lacing. The aroma was spicy with notes of pepper, nutmeg and clove. The flavor was toffee, a bit of nut, dry spices - nutmeg, clove and pepper - was a bit watery with a touch of maltiness. Short spicy finish. Thin and watery body. No citric presence at all. Disappointing.
