29th October at The Fox in East London. This 2012 version is higher in ABV (5.5%) than the previous years iteration (4.7%). Full-bodied, strong and hoppy. Sustained bitter finish. I’m not usually a fan of English hops but have to admit they give an awful lot more in their un-dried form. Shame we can only get these beers in October/November.

Sour and off putting. Not sure what the flavors are but makes me wince at each taste. I think that's because it's too hoppy for an autumn seasonal ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pretty tasty - a slightly herbal, heather like taste over a solid ale with a pleasing bitter finish.

On cask at their tap room. Amazingling fresh smelling beer with a nice refreshing bitterness. Very very nice beer.

Cask in the tap room on the brewing day. Bright coppery red colour, nice thick head. Fresh hoppy aroma. Basically imagine Michael Jackson’s description of how hoppy beers from the SE of England should taste, and this pretty much smashes it. Decent malty background, fresh bursting hop flavour without ridiculous levels of bitterness. I really liked this.

Hazy amber beer, good off white head. Palate is soft and dry. Creamy malt. Floral bitterness that keeps building to a semi dry finish with a medium bitter linger. Simple stuff but done well.

Bottle @ Chriso. Pours a slightly hazy orange color with a longlasting white head. Has a fruity malty grassy hoppy aroma. Fruity malty grassy hoppy flavor. Has a fruity malty hoppy grassy finish.

Tap @ The Union Tavern. The pour’s hazy orange amber with a small whit head. The nose is mango, orange peel, spruce and wet grass. The taste is plum, barnyard funk, light mango and dried grass. The finish has strong wild flavors, plenty of brett. Light body, smooth. Overall, I have to imagine that the brett is unintentional. In this case, it doesn’t destroy the profile of the beer. Interesting, if unintended.

33 cl bottle. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is light yeasty phenolic, grapefruity and light pine. Bitter, fruity and crisp hoppy. Peachy, citrusy and light grapefruity. Dry and bitter finish.

Leighton (9874) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2012
Bottle at home in London. Pours a lightly foggy, bright gold with a small, foamy white head that settles into a creamy film. Nose holds some plastic grass, berries, toasted straw and very light notes of dry caramel. Has a fairly interesting flavor. Medium sweet with lightly toasted pale malts, dry grass, orange peel, dirt, a bit of gravel, some hints of fruity sugars. Light to medium bodied with fine, smooth carbonation. The bitterness in the finish seems a bit harsh, all dried grass, pine needles and citrus peel. There’s also an astringent note in here that doesn’t really thrill me. This is my first beer of the evening and sometimes my first beer of the day seems overly bitter, so I’ll give this beer the benefit of the doubt; aside from the aftertaste I enjoyed this guy.
