Leighton (13198) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2015
Draft at GBBF 2014 - London. Pours clear gold-yellow with a white cream head. Very bready, with light citric tang, hints of caramel and doughy bread. Light bodied with average carbonation. Grainy and bready on the finish. Meh, I don’t think this is a great example of Czech pils.
