COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Don't let the golden color fool you - this isn't your father's lite beer! Brewed with imported German malts and US-grown hops, this beer is a full-flavored introduction to craft-brewed beer. We add the hops late in the boil, allowing you to enjoy the flavor and aroma of the hops without an aggressive bitterness. Sensory Profile: Aromas of orange, spice, and green grass. Clean malt-dominated flavor, with a subdued bitterness playing in the background of the aromas of this beer. Food Pairing: A great match with fish and chicken, both sautéed and grilled, especially with citrus and herbs preparations. Shellfish steamed in Liquid Gold is a match made in beer heaven.

Leighton (9833) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2010
Tap at Fette Sau. Shared a gallon with friends. (Yeah, at Fette Sau you can buy beer by the gallon on site.) Pours a faintly cloudy, glowing gold with a thick, soft white head. Wonderful Belgian aroma with notes of sweet fruits, white grapes perhaps, and candy sugar. Flavor is quite sweet with light cereal maltiness and subtle fruit notes. There is a decent hoppy kick as well, which helps to balance things out. Medium bodied with average carbonation and a smooth texture. Finishes sweet with lingering Belgian flavors. Really good.
