Leighton (18527) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2015
Bottle shared during Scopey’s 5K tasting - Croydon, London. Cheers! Pours clear gold with a creamy white head. The nose holds citrus, orange rind, light hay. Light sweet flavor with rindy citrus bitterness, more hay, pale bread. Light bodied with average carbonation. Dry on the finish, with still further rindy bitterness, moderate sweetness. Not bad.

ladnewton (1806) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2015
Cask at Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell on 28th April 2015. Orangey amber with thin off-white foam and spot lace. Fruity, hoppy aroma with grapefruit and tangerine. Sweet berry fruits, tangerine, lemon and grapefruit in-mouth forming a rich blend. A savoury/nutty touch, and lemon tingle on the tongue. Bitterness and malts dominate a long finish. Zingy mouthfeel and lightish body for strength. A great pale ale.
