Leighton (11889) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2013
Cask at the Cleveland Arms - London. Pours clear brown with a thick, lasting creamy beige head. Lots of ripe orange in the nose, some pine, bready malts. Light to medium sweet flavor, plenty of pine, light caramel, brown bread, ripe orange. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Great condition. Subtle resins to finish, further dark ripe orange, bready malts, hints of pine. A decent beer made excellent by the Cleveland Arms. I shudder to think how much better this beer could have been if Arjen Robben hadn’t just scored the winner.
