Leighton (18074) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2014
Bottle at home in London - picked up at the brewery. Pours mostly clear, bright gold with a soft, frothy white head that settles into a cream. The aroma gives off a lot of citrus character, some ripe orange, tangerine, a bit of sticky pine, papaya. Light to medium sweet with juicy, ripe and rounded tangerine, some more orange, good balancing pale malt sugars, mild pine needles, minerals. Medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Well and resinous to finish with tons of sticky, juicy fruits, mostly citrus but licks of the tropical stuff as well, understated piney and grassy bitterness. A typically stellar Kernel pale ale, this one landing more in the juicy/resinous end of the spectrum (as opposed to those Kernel pales ales that are crisper and drier). Delicious and very, very drinkable.
