Leighton (10772) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2014
Bottle shared at Garbage Night II - London. Many thanks to Fergus for this GA. Pours perfectly clear yellow-gold, lightly effervescent with a frothy white head. Enticing aroma with pleasant citrus, lemon, pineapple and papaya. Light sweet flavor with biscuity pale malts, relaxed citrusy hops, light dough, lemon, melon. Light bodied with fine to average, massaging carbonation. Nice balance to finish with balancing pale malt sugars, some lemon, mild rindy bitterness. Solid little golden ale.
