20th May 2010. On tap at the Rake. Hazy gold beer. Light white head. Slightly silky palate, a little dry. Well balanced. A little salty malt underpinning some spicy hops. A bit different and by the far the best beer I’ve had from Otley. Tasty and very drinkable. Well done Glyn!

Leighton (18525) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2013
Keg at Tap East, London. Pours a lightly fuzzy ruby-gold with a thick, foamy, off-white head. Nose holds tons of sweet, ripe and juicy citrus fruits, some berries, plum, hints of toffee. Medium to big sweet with tons of juicy fruits, lots of berries, grape, some ripe orange, mango, pineapple. Really, just tons of juicy fruits. This isn’t really like a classic DIPA, but it is damn drinkable and pretty nicely balanced. Moderately bitter but not at all harsh. Some juicy pine. Medium to full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Faintly warming finish with lots more juicy, ripe berries, ripe citrus, some bread, cherry, plum. Pretty delicious, even though a classic DIPA it is not.
