A lustrous Golden Ale to remind you of sunny days and summer suppin; welcome to the Carnival! Heady aromas of sweet Pine and Tangerine invite you in while a light caramel body gets things started. The revelry rises with earthy pine and sweet summer citrus flavours carousing the palate, and culminates in a laid-back bitterness and refreshingly dry finish. There’s a party in this glass and your taste buds are invited!

Leighton (10967) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2012
Cask at CBC - Clerkenwell, London. Pours clear gold with a small, foamy white head. Crispy straw nose, hay. Light to medium sweet flavor with crunchy hay (big time), some grass, more straw, pale malts generally. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Pretty sturdy malts to finish with lots of dry, crunchy hay. Doesn’t distance itself from the pack like other MR beers, but it’s still a darn nice drink.
