19th September 2016
Leighton’s flat clearance. Thanks to Colin. Almost clear amber - brown beer, patchy pale tan head. Palate is smooth and semi dry, decent minerally fine carbonation. Tangy dark malts, heading toward sour. Tangy fruits and light floralness. Light finish. Over tangy for me.

Bottle. My first from this brewery. Small head with a sulphuric taste dominating. Acidic and not easy to drink. Try to ignore this one unless it is bottled better.

500ml bottle thanks to a colleague. Given the fact it’s been hanging around in my fridge for ages, it’s held up ok. Touch of vinegar perhaps but some dark malts. Ok dark mild, nothing too exciting.
