EdKing (1965) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2011
Bottle from the brewery. Pours thick cloudy tan brown with creamy head. Lots of sediment in the bottle. Nose is really pungent tropical fruit: mango, papaya, grapefruit. Taste is big juicy tropical fruit, with some strong citrous sourness and bitterness on the tongue. Very bold and almost too much. Also bit of toasty malt and texture is really thick.

Leighton (11610) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2011
Bottle at home in London. Pours a very cloudy brown with a huge, faintly tan head. Holds a gorgeous aroma of pine, grapefruit, sharp grains toast. Great flavor, well balanced. Plenty juicy, some orange and grapefruit, bit of dirty grass and pine, more toast, oily and resinous bitterness. Medium to full in body with average carbonation. Sweetm fairly sticky finish, lots of oily pine, bit of grapefruit and citrus rind, mild grass and earth. Damn, this beer is great on pretty much every front. I suppose it might be a bit cloudy, though.
