Leighton (18075) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2012
On tap at Borefts 2012, Bodegraven. Pours clear gold with a fine, white cream head. Big, sugary malt nose, some wheaty notes. Hugely sweet flavor, big bready malts, light alcohol, subtle toffee, some ripe fruits. Full bodied with average carbonation. Super sweet finish, light warmth, sticky sugars, caramel, some cherries. A bit heavy, but there are some nice - if very rich - characteristics in here.
