Bottle. Bronze with a small head. Malty with a trace of bitterness. Left a malty aftertaste. An excellent attempt at a lovely style that is well worth trying.

Almost clear amber beer with a good pale cream coloured head. Palate is smooth and slightly soft. Very fine carbonation. Smooth creamy malt, touch of unsweet toffee. Good dried fruits and a subtle fresh orange tang on the backend. Finishes smooth. Well joined up and very satisfying as a pottered about the kitchen getting me dinner!

Leighton (18526) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2013
Bottle at a ChrisO tasting - London. Pours clear, orange-gold with a fine, white foam head. Basic nose of lightly toasted malts and leaves. Medium sweet flavor, lightly alcoholic, with caramel and bready malts. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Faintly sticky sweet to finish with a bit more caramel and modest, leafy bitterness. Bland, but OK.

Bottled. Goldeny amber colour, small white head. Aroma is caramel, fruityness, some sweet notes of grains. Flavour is fruity, floral, caramelly, mild gluelike notes. Not that close to a bock...
