Leighton (17195) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2015
Bottle at home in London - sourced from Ales by Mail. Pours clear brown with a creamy tan head. The aroma holds toasty brown bread, caramel and burnt leaves. Medium sweet flavor with simple, sugary chocolate, toasted caramel, dates, very mild leafy and earthy bitterness. Light bodied with average carbonation. Finishes sweet with some pleasant dark berry notes, some dusty cocoa, caramel, mellow hop presence. Very simple but also quite drinkable.
