Leighton (19188) - London, Greater London, - JAN 30, 2011
Cask at the Anthologist. Clear copper pour with a medium, white head. Standard aroma, some leafy bitters, earth, bready malts. Flavor isnt bad, lightly sweet with toasty bread and mild, citric bitters. Light to medium in body with fine to average carbonation. Dries out in the finish with modest malt sweetness, faint citrus and earthy hops that hit the throat. Unexciting overall but not bad.
