Craft Islington. Keg. Clear and bright paleish gold beer. Little white head. Palate is airy, softish and semi dry. Fresh skunky hops and what tastes like lager malt. A sprinkle of nuts. Mild minerals. Finishes dry. Interesting!

Leighton (10483) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2013
Keg at CBC Islington, London. Pours clear yellow, effervescent, with a tight, white cream head. Bright lemon, straw and pee in the nose. Light, almost medium sweet flavor with brisk, bright lemon, some dry grass, lime, pine needles. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Super fresh, clean finish, lots of understated citrus fruits, light bitterness, a bit of pee, lime, lemon. No, it isn’t heavy-handed, but it’s the most drinkable and fresh beer of the night.
