Bottle picked up in Belgium and shared at Leighton’s. 5.7% BB Aug 2016. Dark amber orange, small foamy tan head. Aroma is biscuity, wafer, a touch vegetal. Body is medium, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is bready, vegetable starch, light malt, papery finish with some dry metallic hops. Very basic, but OK. Roughly what was expected.

Leighton (16268) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2015
Bottle shared in London - big thanks to Daniel for this rare treat! Pours crystal clear orange-gold with a creamy topping. Sugary bread in hype nose, light caramel, hints of oxidation, paper. Medium sweet flavor with hints of melon, sugary bread, orange, a little loose leaf paper. Light bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish with more bread, hints of honey, hay, paper, grain. So so.

Bottle big thanks to Danny. It pours clear amber with a medium off-white head. The nose is earthy, toasty, wet paper, cardboard, light sweetness and dust. The taste is crisp, bitter, clean, toasty, mild sweetness, paper, grassy, icing sugar and spice with a short, dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Forgettable.

Malenka buteleczka i malenka pianka. Kolor jasny i klarowny. Slodowo wytrawny czuc tu brytyjskiego bittera ale jednak jest srednio. Jakos wszystko smakuje i pachnie bardzo ulotnie. Piwo nie pozostaweia zadnego posmaku na dluzej w ustach.

Klares bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit einer fingerbreiten leicht beigen Schaumkrone. Geruch muffig hopfig, karamellig, dumpf metallisch. Geschmack sehr malzig, würzig, leichte Restsüße, Karamell, unangenehm hopfig.

English pale ale fait par Inbev sous la direction de Whitbread London (Est. 1742). Malt d’orge et maïs !!!! Couleur roux caramel (emploi de E 150 c, caramel ammoniacal, pour la couleur … !!! ??? Clarté nette. Bulles moyennes quasi nulles. Mousse blanc cassé, à gros flocons, grasse (maïs). 1ère bouche pâteuse (maïs) avec une petite amertume. Arrière-bouche qui est sans vraie ligne (un peu de malt, un peu de houblon). 2ème indéfinie, aqueuse. Arrière-bouche industrielle. 3ème sans noblesse, du caramélisé de bas étage. Arrière-bouche minable. Longueur insipide, inodore, mais pas incolore (E 150 c …). Levure vraiment sans consistance. Alcool sans intérêt, puisqu’il n’a rien à soutenir … Finale banalissime. CONCLUSION : à quoi sert une antériorité de 1742 pour pareille mixture ?? Une banale soupe avec un peu de maïs et de E 150 c ...

Not bad for what it is, but it is no competition for the better Belgian beers!
