COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Seasonal - Winter. Also available bottle conditioned.
Ingredients: Pale malt, crystal malt, chocolate malt, caramalt, wheat malt. Fuggles and Bramling Cross hops.
"At Hopdaemon we have balanced the complex flavours of traditional malt varieties with the richness of Kentish hops to create Leviathan a strong ruby ale that conditions naturally in the bottle."

erickok (3548) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JAN 2, 2012
Light brown, almost clear body with frothy beige head. Nice aroma of English hops, lightly spiced, cashew nuts and muffins. Bitter, straightforward taste. Easily drinkable and enjoyable. Not overly complex though and definitely not a beast. Surely nice in its style. (50cl bottle, 4,00 EUR)
