This special beer has been brewed using Munich malt and golden oats to give it a beautiful biscuit backbone and a creamy smooth finish. Fuggles hops add their signature earthy and rich character before maturation in bourbon oak unlocks delicious flavours of vanilla and toffee from deep inside the oak grain. Available exclusively in all provinces of Canada (except Quebec and PEI).

Hazy amber color with some sediment. Light bourbon aroma. Good malt flavor, with nice bourbon vanilla, sweet oak compounding; sweetish overall, but with correct bitterness.
Not overly complex, but pleasant.

Leighton (14704) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2013
Bottle at home in London - picked up at Kris Wines. Pours clear copper with a tight, creamy tan head. The aroma holds light peat, some toasted toffee, hints of tangy berries. Big sweet flavor, lots of toffee, toasted sugars, bread, mild peat, overripe berries, golden raisins, touches of vanilla, a bit of honey-cured ham. Medium bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Sticky sweet finish, lots more honey-cured ham, toffee, toasty sugars, berries, overripe fruits, hints of maple syrup. Interesting stuff. A bit cloying at points but not bad overall.
