Leighton (11874) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2012
Cask at the Euston Tap, London. Pours clear, amber-gold with a fine, white foam head. Quite a bit of urine in the nose, some manure. Medium to big sweet flavor, old urine, overripe citrus, orange, some toasted then wet grass. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish, lots of urine and very ripe orange, along with some other fruits and wet pine. Interesting. Not bad.

Clear orange beer, small creamy off-white head, pretty stable, adhesive leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: very fruity, pineapple, passion fruits and sweet mango, bit piny. MF: no carbon, full body. Taste: very fruity, pineapple, passion fruit, some grapefruit, bit piny bitterness, little cheesy. Aftertaste: more citric hops, grapefruit bitter.

Cask at HW. Golden with white head.  Aroma has typical citra notes, light and fruity with a slightly milky note. Similar taste, little lactic fruitiness. Well bittered. I’d prefer this cold and carbonated. Decent
