Leighton (11322) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2014
Cask at CPK during the pub’s 5th birthday celebration - London. Pours clear gold with a slight, white foam head. The nose holds rindy tangerine, some herbs, pale malts. Light sweet flavor with further rind, general citrus fruits, pine. Light bodied with fine carbonation; good condition. Nicely balanced on the finish with soft resinous hops, some pine needles, rind and a bit of ripe tangerine. Very nice.
