Leighton (18527) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2015
Cask at the Old Nun’s Head - Nunhead, London. Pours clear gold with a frothy white head. The nose holds jammy citrus, light berries, pale bread. Medium sweet flavor with light minerality, rich bread, more jammy fruits, marmalade, light pine. Medium bodied with fine carbonation; fair condition. Moderately resinous on the finish, with light alcohol warmth, more sticky citrus. So so overall. A throw-back IPA.
