Leighton (11900) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2014
Bottle shared in Belgium - picked up at a Carrefour. Pours clear amber with a big, billowing yellowy off-white head. The nose holds lots of bready malts, caramel and toasted sugars. Medium sweet flavor with sugary, lightly toasted malts, hints of cereal and caramel; but thankfully the sweetness is never excessive. Medium to full in body with average carbonation. Lightly dried caramel in the finish with further toasty, rich bread. A very nice biere de garde. Pretty well balanced and drinkable.
