Leighton (20640) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2013
Bottle drank on the Metro North railway on my journey into Manhattan. Pours perfectly clear copper with a fine, white foam head. Bready malt nose with generic ripening fruits. Light to medium sweet flavor with a character defined mostly by bready malts, hints of toasty dough, soft caramel notes, slight bitterness. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish with more basic, bready malts, faint leafy hops, some lightly dried caramel, doughy brown bread. Simple beer but fine overall.

Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours clear copper with a creamy, transient beige head. Aroma is floral/citrus with some subtle caramel backing. Med body. Flavor is more floral than anything else, with a little sweet caramel. Some citrus in the finish. Which is more malty than not.

Tmoney99 (14203) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 7, 2014
Bottle. Poured clear amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate sweet balanced aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium balanced flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met with a soft sweet drinkable beer.

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks beerandbeyond. Clear deep golden color. Aroma is a bit oxidized with a bit of cardboard, fruitiness and a bit of caramel. Sweetish flavor, a bit caramelly, fruity, with a bit of spiciness in the finish. Light to medium-bodied.

Drake (13303) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 5, 2013
12 ounce bottle. This is probably an alias, but rating it just in case. Pours a clear copper color with a thin creamy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of, well, not much. Faint caramel and wheat. The taste is bready malts, nutty notes, stone fruits, a salty note and mild raisin and hops. Medium bodied.

Pitiful beer, absolute joke. Watery throughout, very mild carbonation, near diacetyl

"somehow forgot to rate this one...had to dig a little for the notes. not bad for blue moon. wither they didnt f it up, or i just dig the style. probably a little of each. still average at best, for a cool style, but something i dont mind drinking. the bitterness from the hops nicely offsets the slightly muddled malt and spice(?)."
