It has a deep reddish amber color body with good clarity. The head is thin and white in color. Its head fades out quickly leaving no lacing behind. The aroma has sweet caramel and malty notes with some grainy cereal notes as well. The flavor is rather simple, thin and light. It is similar to the aroma with a sweet cereal grain and light caramel malt. Hop flavor is light and grassy. It adds a good bit of bitterness as well as some metallic notes to the finish. The body is light and its texture is thin with a sort of light fizzy carbonation.

Bottle. Pours a light amber with cream coloured head. Tons of caramel on the nose, taste is similar with a subtle hop bite. Pretty solid.

Bottle, pours a light amber, light head, aroma is light, tastes a little caramel, maybe some straw, a light toastiness, and overall it was what it was.

Leighton (10674) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2013
Bottle in NH. Pours clear, light amber-gold with a mild, creamy off-white head. The nose has simple bready malts and ripe berries. Medium sweet flavor with sugary bread, brown sugar, light caramel. Light bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish, more sugary and bready malts, caramel, no bitterness. Somewhat tasty but I wouldn’t want to drink a ton of this.

12 oz bottle from the four type variety case. Weak, insipid and anemic. The low cost of the case explains everything.

Bottle @ home tossed via courtesy of BlackIPA. Tasted during the Pussypete presents Molson/Labatt Grand Tasting 2013 in my parent’s basement. Cheers! Pours a clear dark burnt orange appearance with a light brown head. Toasted malty, caramel, a bit nutty, light espresso aroma. Slightly watery, a touch earthy, coffee, burnt malty flavor. Actually not overly bland like the others in the mixer pack but still not very good.

Malty red lager. Dirty tasting. No hops to speak of. Not very good. Limited edition bottling. Meh.

I think this rating goes here...11.5oz, ’limited edition’ bottling. Poured a golden/amber color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of caramel, toasted grains, and some honey. Tastes follow.

This beer is not much of a bitey red just very light and thin like the rest in the sampler.
