Leighton (13513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle shared during the RBESG 2014 London Grand Tasting - Moncada Brewery. Pours perfectly clear yellow with a foamy white cap. Nice and sugary without being syrupy and cloying, with teasing accents of paper, cereal and straw. Light bodied with average carbonation. Lightly sweet on the finish with further notes of cereal and paper. Nothing too wrong with this one. Solid session malt liquor.

A big fucken 40 oz bottle courtesy of The Hoff. Thanks, brohammed. Opened this bad boy up at a tasting. Everyone thought I just brought the regular Olde English Malt Liquor, but they couldn’t have been further from the truth. Everyone seemed to change their tune when I pointed out the fine print on the bottle that revealed this was in fact the 3.2 ABW version. The crowd went silent, the hands came out, waiting for a pour of this elusive elixir. The beer itself looks much like the original: pale golden pour with a foamy white head. Pretty bland, unoffensive aroma. Smells mostly like corn and lemon peels. Maybe some soap, grass, and malt or grain. A bit on the watery side. The flavor is more of the same. Bland, a bit watery, but sweet. Some corn and grain flavors, a bit of lemon, and some soap. A touch of grassy hops, no bitterness, and none of that fusel alcohol that is so prevalent in malt liquors. Overall, this is pretty innocuous, but it’s also pretty low boost. Like with most of these kinds of beers, the ratings on this one are exaggerated downward. This isn’t so bad at all.
