Leighton (18075) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2012
Bottle at home in London. Pours clear, light yellow-gold with a small, foamy white head. Dough, cereal and light hay in the aroma. Light to medium sweet flavor, cereal, hay, light zesty citrus, faint grassy bitterness. Light bodied with average to lively carbonation. Crisp finish, lightly sweet with mild cereal, dough, faint straw. Very basic but pretty refreshing. Kind of watery but yeah, pretty easy drinking.

500ml bottle from M&S. I suppose one of the benefits of being ill is that I get the chance to catch up on some rates. Pale gold thick white rocky head Cardboard on aroma. A fairlt timid and thin lager, some hints at a lemony hop finish. Pretty poor

Bottled, 500ml from M&S Banbury. Gold with fizzed head. Light, slightly flowery, fruity lager, a touch flabby rather than crisp I would say, but reasonable enough. Some lemon though. It’s ok.
