Leighton (15281) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2014
Draft at the brewery taproom. Pours clear, amber-red with a mild, creamy tan head. The aroma holds butterscotch and bread, perhaps some caramel. Light to medium sweet flavor, a bit of butterscotch, maple syrup, bread. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Light sweet finish with lightly toasted brown bread, maple accents, creme caramel. So so.

Patrickctenchi (5210) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - DEC 26, 2014
Bottle: Pours clear, dark amber-red with frothy beige head. Caramel, chocolate scent. Sweet, light, watery caramel malt flavor.... Nothing bad about this one, but it’s just too weak and watery for the style......no personality or depth.....
