Leighton (10405) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2012
Bottle on the train to Brussels for Paul’s Pre-Wedding Boys n Beers Weekend of Fun. This beer pours a cloudy, ruby-brown with a small, white head. There’s some definite ripe and slightly tangy fruit in the aroma. Also some raisins and caramel. The flavor is very sweet, with lots of caramel, bread, dry fruit, leather, toast and ripe citrus. Full in body with fine carbonation. Warm finish with leathery ripe fruits, light earthy bitterness and toasty malts. There is certainly some apparent age on this beer (I’ve had it for two+ years) but it’s very nice with some interesting character.
