Couldn’t taste ’mountains’ of hops, to be honest, but a very good sessionable pint. Some lemon aromas, grassy too. Very light malty biscuit undertone. Nice.

Leighton (9838) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2012
Cask at Craft Beer Co. - Islington, London. Pours clear gold with a fine, white cap. Melon and jammy citrus in the nose. Light sweet flavor with sweet fruits and light sticky grass. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Lightly dry on the finish with lime, citrus and straw. Nice, although the condition is sub-par. I’m sure this could be better.
