Cloudy pink brown beer, no real head. Not pretty! Dry palate. Woody dryness with mild tart blackcurrant. Mild lactose like sweetness in the undertone. Semi dry finish. A slightly odd beer - ugly as hell but with a pleasant blackcurrant that avoids being too acidic.

Leighton (14006) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2015 Bottle shared in London - thanks to Colin for this. Pours murky brown with a bubbly head; looks like poop water. Smells like tart fruits, a bit of meat. Light sweet flavor with old berries, wood, leather, earth. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly tart on the finish, some old raisins, berries, earth. Not bad in the end. Has aged interestingly.

Bottle shared at the 5K/7.5K/10K tasting - who has a 7.5K tasting?, from an IP trade with MJ, 30/12/14. Murked up reddish amber with moderate off white spotting - touch of festival toilet water about the appearance! Nose is raspberry, straw, fruit syrup, quite rich fruit considering the age. Taste comprises blackcurrant jelly, oxidisation has set in but not OTT, fruit gum, red berry syrup. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, sweet berry and must in the close. Ok as fruit beers go and certainly considering the age.
