Leighton (18745) - London, Greater London, - FEB 1, 2013
Gravity cask at the Snooty Fox, London. Pours clear copper with a small, feothy white head. Sweet berries in the nose. Light to medium sweet flavor, some lightly tangy berries, hints of bready malts, mild leafy hops. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Malfy bread finish, faint tangy berries, toasty dough, mellow leafy bitterness. It’s a very simple amber ale, but very drinkable as well.
