Leighton (14430) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2011
Bottle at home in London with Lyoli. Pours clear, rich gold with a small, white head. Sweet dough aroma. Medium sweet flavor, some toasty dough, light grain, light fruits, very mild bitterness. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet, malty finish, subtle citrus fruits, dough, light grains. Very easy-drinking beer. I like it.

futre7 (182) - Taipei, TAIWAN - SEP 24, 2011
Floral scent. Very thin head. Quite a lot of carbonation for an ale. Taste is slightly bitter citrus with traces of hops. Not an overly impressive ale. Has a lot in common with an average lager. Overall unremarkable but not disgusting. At 4.1% it can be sessioned.
